YORK'S New Look stores are challenging people to take part in a ‘spinathon’ to help raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.

The static bike endurance test asks people to complete the 191km Leeds to Harrogate stage of the Tour de France by cycling on an exercise bike at home or in the gym. Alternatively, a team of family or friends can form a relay team to ride the 548km UK leg of the Tour.

The initiative is part of a year-long partnership between the company, which has stores in Blake Street, Parliament Street and Monk's Cross in York, and the charity. The firms Yorkshire stores are hoping to raise at least £10,000 towards helping people aged 13 to 24 who have cancer.

Teenage Cancer Trust, which recently received nearly £4 million from teenage cancer fundraiser Stephen Sutton, supports young people with cancer during their treatment. It offers various services, such as setting up specialist units in NHS hospitals and visiting schools to help young people understand the illness.
