Starbucks staff raise cash for Southampton Hospital Charity

First published in News

THEY peddled hard for 80 miles – but they never left Southampton.

Staff from Starbucks in London Road cycled the distance from the city to Bath, to raise money for Southampton Hospital Charity.

Retail business manager Colin Hooper said customers were very supportive along with local businesses, like Studio Red Fitness who loaned the coffee shop the bike.

Mr Hooper added: “Everyone here has got involved and we have shown great team spirit while the reaction from customers has been great.”

Staff estimate they raised more than £200 from the event and are looking to add to the total with an upcoming raffle and acoustic and jazz evening.
