BANK staff will be swapping their suits for jumpers and jogging bottoms when they take part in a charity fun run in St Neots.
Two employees from the town's branch of Cambridge Building Society are taking part in this year's St Neots Riverside Fun Run.
In a bid to raise money for charity, Sarah Nash and Cheryl Newman will tackle the 3km race, which is taking place at 10am in Eynesbury on Sunday, November 16.
Mrs Nash and Mrs Newman have been training for the past six months and with support from colleagues, friends and family they hope to raise money for the Isobel Hospice in Welwyn Garden City, a charity chosen by Mrs Newman because of the care it offered her mother who died from cancer.
The pair had been hoping to compete in the St Neots Riverside Half Marathon taking place on the same day as the fun run but had to pull out due to injuries.
Mrs Newman said: "Whilst it was going to be a massive challenge just to finish it, we're really disappointed that we're not able to compete in the big race. We will, however, give it our all in the 3km fun run and will hopefully raise lots of money for the two charities."
