A CAR showroom charity night has helped to raise money and showcase a cycle ride for a cancer charity.

Three staff from Northgate Volkswagen, in Bury St Edmunds – Terry Scott, Joe Parmenter and Shaun Barlow – will cycle 253 miles from London to Paris in July in aid of Macmillan Cancer Research.

But to give fund-raising a good start, the dealership filled its showroom with beauty treatments, colour analysis sessions plus stalls of homemade crafts, gifts and jewellery for a ladies’ pampering and shopping night which raised more than £1,000.

Shaun said: “The money raised has certainly kick started our fund-raising efforts.”
