Colleagues at Melton’s Sainsbury’s store will embark on a charity bike ride next week.

Liam Bradley, Jack Hall and Graham McNulty will take part in the fund-raising cycle ride in aid of the Treble One Trust, which helps sufferers of motor neurone disease (MND) and was set up by inspirational Melton man and fund-raiser Stewart Sparling before he died last year from the condition.

The challenge begins on Friday, September 9 in Loughborough – they will ride 72.5 miles to Chaddesden, Derbyshire. Colleague Michelle Weightman will join the ride.

Day two starts at Sleaford and finishes 85 miles on at Hinckley, stopping at Melton for a breakfast break.

Day three starts in Bingham and finishes at Kimberly, a distance of 71.5 miles.

People can support the riders by donating via text by texting ‘STEW11’ and the amount they would like to donate to 70070.

Activities will also be going on in-store during the weekend, with staff riding spin bikes donated by Waterfield Leisure Centre.

Meanwhile, a tombola and stall in-store this Sunday will raise money for the bike ride.
