A CAR and van hire firm have helped a group raising money for charity.
Flexii Car and Van Hire, based in Horninglow Street, Burton, loaned a van to the Ladies Circle as they embarked on a 'pedal for pounds' challenge.
The group, including representatives from up and down the country, cycled 220 miles from Southport to raise money for Whizz Kidz.
A spokesman for the group said: "Our cycling ability was mixed – from absolute beginners to hardcore cyclists, but everyone was committed to pedalling for those pounds!
"People asked why go the distance? Well it was because there are an estimated 70,000 disabled children and young people in the UK waiting for a wheelchair that will transform their young lives.
"Whizz Kidz's mission is to provide the vital equipment, support."
The group raised £6,211.69 in total as a result of undertaking the challenge.
