Lloyds staff in a spin for charity

Lloyds bank staff in the Island have joined hundreds of colleagues around the UK in a fund-raising marathon which has seen them cycle the equivalent of three times around the earth.

Four teams from Lloyds in Douglas took part in the challenge at the bank's head office in Peveril Building.

Staff pedalled on static bikes in relays non-stop over a 24-hour period, returning to their desks between sessions. They raised £1,000 which will be matched by the bank.

A total of 850 staff across the Lloyds group were involved at 59 locations, overall raising more than £164,000 for the company's charity of the year, Save the Children.

Together they clocked-up nearly 55,000 miles, three times the circumference of the planet!
