Colleagues at the Norwich & Peterborough, in Leiston, and Yorkshire Building Society, in Woodbridge, strode out for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

They joined branches across the country raising money for the Hour of Need campaign, enabling nurses to provide support for terminally ill people and their families.

Staff at Woodbridge tried to cover a total of 24 miles on a treadmill, while in Leiston they aimed for 24,000 steps on a stepping machine.

Both branches are selling the charity’s daffodil pins during March. The Leiston branch is holding a raffle on March 27.
