Christened the Zone 5 Big Ride, the event takes place from September 4-8 and is to raise money for the Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research Charity.

It involves staff members cycling from 10 different start points to Carlisle. They will cover 2,103miles over 10 routes, visiting 120 Sainsbury’s stores along the way.

There will also be accompanying events in Sainsbury’s stores in Hawick, Kelso, Peebles and Selkirk over the course of the five days.
