STAFF FROM pub are competing to take place in a Spartan chariot race.

Team members at The Station pub in Eastleigh are attempting to raise the most money for Cancer Research UK, to help them win a place in a Spartan chariot cycling race.

The race is set to take place in London on June 20 and start at 12pm at The Minories just north of the Tower of London.

Eastleigh is not the only town in the running and in total, 114 pubs in Stonegate Pub Company’s southern region are competing against each other to win seats on one of eight cycle chariots.

There are twelve seats on each chariot and only those pubs that raise the most money in their area will get to take part in the race.

Those that do win a place will pedal on chariots around central and east London for five miles in full Spartan costume.

Operations director at Stonegate Pub Company, who came up with the fundraising idea, Colin Hawkins said: “We’ve all been touched by cancer in some way in our lives, so we wanted to do our bit to raise money to help stamp out this awful
