STAFF at the Cancer Research UK shop in Greenock are getting on their bikes to try and raise £2,000 for this year’s Stand Up To Cancer campaign.

A number of activities were held in the store over two days, with assistant manager Lynn Russell going the extra mile.

Lynn decided to do her bit by cycling in the shop window for the full two days of fundraising.

Store manager Jeanette Watt, said: “Lynn was fantastic.

“We ended up putting a cushion on the seat of the bike to make her more comfortable but she was determined to carry on, she was such a trooper.

“Cycling in the shop window certainly attracted attention and not only did customers come in and donate and offer words of encouragement but people who were passing by and noticed her also came in.”

The staff managed to raise £427 across the two days which was added to money already raised, taking the overall total to £1,839.

Jeanette said: “Our customers are fantastic and we can’t thank them enough, they ensured the store was busy over the two days and got stuck into the activities.”

Customers were able to try their luck with a raffle, tombola and a lucky dip.

There was a cake sale, competitions and a basketball challenge.

She said: “In store it was all fun and games but we were raising money for something really important.

“Customers came in and many were already aware of what we were doing.

“I want to thank the staff and volunteers for their efforts throughout the campaign but also all our customers and people who donated.

“We still have money coming in and I am confident that we can reach our target of £2,000.”
