STAFF at a cycle centre have ‘raleigh-ed’ around to come up with an innovative way to fundraise.

Two bikes that have been donated anonymously, have been put up for sale at the Hayfield Wheelers Cycle Centre.

Proceeds will go to the Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

The two cycles, one for a boy and the other a girl aged nine and over, are in the bike shop’s window along Princegate in the town centre.

Both are worth £169.99, however manager Henry George only wants £135.99 each.

He said: “They’re both brand new and would make for lovely presents as well as help a worthy cause.

“We wanted to do something different to raise money for a local charity.”
