Throughout the weekend, the team at Pleasurewood Hills in Lowestoft has been taking part in a virtual bike race to their sister attraction - West Midlands Safari Park - near Birmingham.

Employees have been taking it in turns to hop on exercise bikes as they virtually cycle the 210-mile distance for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

Sarah Morris, the park's commercial manager, said the team had produced the goods to complete the ride with ease.

"EACH is one of our charities for the season and, with children's hospices week approaching, we decided to kick things off with a charity bike ride," she said.

"We have smashed our target of getting to Birmingham, so now we are biking back to Lowestoft! Staff have been taking time out of their normal working day to do this and there has been such a great team spirit."
