A 24-HOUR cyclethon has raised more than �4,000 towards the cost of building a new clubhouse at Potters Bar Cricket Club.

The event, which took place at the club last month, involved keeping the wheels of two exercise bikes turning continuously for 24 hours.

Around 30 club members took part in the challenge, which was organised by Sarah Withers.

Sarah, who plays hockey for the club, said she was pleased with the amount raised.

The 21-year-old also said a number of other fundraising activities would take place at the club in the next few months.
