The launch of the ride saw members of Bury FC visit the dealership to get the proceedings under way and add their pedal power to this worthwhile cause.
Held as part of Toyota GB’s national fundraising efforts to raise £1 million for Red Nose Day, the team have installed a stationary bike in the dealership, where employees are taking turns to clock up the miles.
Local people are also being urged to pop in from now until March 13 to sponsor the team, donate or even to join the fun and participate in clocking up the miles.
Customers can also raise money by buying an exclusive Comic Relief Red Nose and have it fitted on their car for £5.
Dealer principal Andy Couser said: ‘We’re all revved up to put our best foot forward for this year’s Comic Relief sponsored cycle and we’re urging the local people of Bury to pop into the dealership and get involved in our collective efforts to raise money for this fantastic cause.’
RRG Bury is one of the longest-serving Toyota centres in the country, with a loyal customer base who have been buying and servicing their cars at the Bury site for more than 30 years.
