The team at the Cancer Research UK charity shop in Spalding had lots of inspiration for their Stand Up to Cancer sponsored bike ride and collection which raised about £1,000.

First was the passion aroused by the campaign to beat cancer and second was the generous support of family, friends and shop customers. However, for shop manager of two years Sasha Darley (24), the spur also came from her mum, Nancy, who took a brief turn on the static bike during the 12-hour marathon. Sasha said: “My mum got cancer twice in a year, but she’s fine now.” The team who took it in turns to keep the wheels going round are (from left) Lea Flynn, Sasha Darley, relief manager Lisa Winkley and Dawn Elderkin.
