East Yorkshire cyclists have helped to raise more than £600 for charity – even though their bikes did not move an inch.

Service users and employees at a day centre and a couple of residential care properties performed the 12-hour cycling marathon on an exercise bike.

The riders, including cooks, domestic staff and care workers, took turns between 8am and 8pm.

The cycleathon was staged by Millers Day Centre and the New House and Town View care homes.

The fundraiser was to commemorate the life of Ron Aboe, a former Town View care worker, who last month died from Motor Neurone Disease (MND) aged 61.

Cash raised, including a £200 gift from Beverley Lions Club, will go to the MND Association with donations still pouring in.

Diane Golding, the manager of Town View, said the care home was “overwhelmed” at people’s generosity and thanked all who had participated in or donated to the event.
