STAFF at a Doncaster hotel are gearing up for a 140-mile cycle marathon.
The six workers at the Crown Hotel in Bawtry have joined forces to raise money for Cancer Research UK through the long haul ride.
From Thursday, July 21, until Saturday, July 23, the team will cycle 155 miles from Whitehaven to Tynemouth in the coast to coast ride.
Des White, who organised the team, said: “The training has been really hard.
“We have been up at the crack of dawn most mornings before work and then again sometimes after too.
“The team spirit has kept us focused and also the fact that we are raising money for such a great cause.”
The team is made up of a variety of staff from the hotel, from the maintenance department to the bar. They have been sponsored by the hotel and also its Lux Hair salon
Katey Dent, sales manager at the hotel, said: “We wish the guys all the best of luck and if anyone would like to sponsor them or for more information, please contact myself or Des at Crown hotel for more details on 01302 710341.”
