The group from King’s Lynn has spent two days fund raising in Tesco’s Hardwick Road store.

After helping shoppers pack bags in return for donations, they moved on to complete a 143-mile simulated ride around Norfolk on exercise bikes.

They were hoping to raise £800 for the project, at King’s Lynn Mind’s allotment at Lynnsport.

The work will include a fire pit, shelter and new seating on the award-winning plot.
