The Argus team is raising funds in support of children's charity NSPCC.

Staff at The Argus and its sister titles across the South East, including advertising, editorial, and newspaper sales teams from offices in Basildon, Colchester, and Brighton, collectively cycled on exercise bikes 912 miles, the equivalent of a journey from London to Glasgow and back.

The fundraiser is part of our company Newsquest's continued support for its chosen charity of the year.

An exercise bike was delivered to The Argus office in Bond Street, Brighton, by The Gym Group.

Editor Arron Hendy said: "I really loved going on the bike for a good cause. It was safer than my usual commute along the A259.

"I want to thank the Gym Group at Eastbourne Sovereign Harbour for lending us the bike.

"As Newsquest's chosen charity this year we are doing all we can to help promote the great work done by the NSPCC."

Some 60 staff members cycled the virtual course at an average of 15 miles each.

Sir Peter Wanless, CEO of the NSPCC, said: “We estimate that half a million children across the UK suffer abuse each year, so our mission at the NSPCC is to make sure that everyone plays their part in keeping children safe.

“We are hugely grateful to Newsquest for this amazing opportunity to give readers greater insight into the work of our staff and volunteers as well as how they can help protect children.
