The day saw a team manager, who suffers from epilepsy, ride 30 miles on a bike and male employees had their legs waxed too.

There was also a bake-off, whilst all co-workers wore purple for the day, held on March 26.

The team were raising funds for Epilepsy Action.

Martin Paine, who has had epilepsy for 22 years, completed a 30-mile ride on a cycling machine.
