Staff from a popular theme park will be taking on a special challenge this weekend.

On Saturday and Sunday (June 15/16) the team at Pleasurewood Hills in Lowestoft will be taking part in a virtual bike race from the park - as they attempt to cycle 210-miles a day to their sister park - West Midland Safari Park - in Birmingham.

The team will take it in turns to hop on exercise bikes as they virtually cycle 210-miles to raise money for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

They will be racing against the clock as they have to reach their destination during the hours that the park is open - between 10am and 5pm on both days.

Sentinel Leisure Trust have provided two exercise bikes to use for the challenge so the tally from each bike can be added to the overall total.

With the bikes set up near to the main entrance booths, all donations are welcome and can also be pledged online via https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/PleasurewoodPedallers
