Head office staff at a chain of children’s day nurseries ‘travelled’ more than 600 miles last Friday in a bid to raise money for their partner nursery in Kenya. Staff at The Children’s Place, which has a base at Free School Lane, Halifax, climbed aboard exercise bikes to cycle continuously for twelve hours to cover the distance.

Staff have taken part in a number of gruelling events to cover 6,337 miles - the distance between their Wyke head office and Nairobi, Kenya.
