bank workers rolled into Pudsey after swapping their computers for cycles during a gruelling charity challenge.

Sixty colleagues from Lloyds Banking Group have raised over £245,000 for the Group’s Charity of the Year, BBC Children in Need.

Three groups of 20 riders departed from London, Edinburgh and Cardiff earlier this week and cycled over 300 miles in just three-and-a-half days to arrive all together in Pudsey yesterday.

The west Leeds town is home to one of the group’s regional offices and is named after BBC CHildren in Need’s mascot. The riders were welcomed by TV presenter, Gethin Jones, who had cheered Team Cardiff at the start of the challenge. Gethin said: “I love to see people pushing themselves to achieve sporting success – especially when they are raising money for such a great cause.”
