A KIDDERMINSTER shopping centre manager has used pedal power to raise £170 for charity.

Rosalyn Darby set up a static bike inside the Swan Shopping Centre and cycled for four hours and 30 minutes, in front of customers , in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The cancer charity has been adopted by the owners of the shopping centre – DTZ – as its charity partner until 2016.

The global real estate firm has already collected more than £20,000 for the cause .

Ms Darby said: “The challenge was made easier as I had the support of the staff in the Swan Centre as well as the tenants and DTZ.

"We aim to carry on cycling until we have reached our goal of 839 miles – John O’ Groats to Land’ s End.”

All money raised will help Teenage Cancer Trust improve the quality of life and chances of survival for the seven young people aged 13 to 24 who are diagnosed with cancer every day.
