A supermarket store cleaner is cycling the equivalent of the Wisbech to Inverness in the Scottish Highlands and back again to raise money for charity.
Jim Thorpe, 60, has taken a week off work to set up his bike inside the Cromwell Road Tesco superstore to pedal for up to 11 hours a day to raise money for Diabetes UK.
Within three days he has raised more than £685 for the nominated store charity.
Mr Thorpe, who works as a cleaner at the supermarket, is spending a week at the front of the supermarket to pedal for the mammoth charity challenge.
Community champion Heidi Mote said: “He does a lot of cycling and took the time off to do this charity stunt in his own time.
“Customers have been really supportive. His aim is to cycle 1,000 miles and raise £1,000,” she said.
