AXMINSTER Tool Centre staff travelled by bus, cycle and even a pink scooter - as part of Devon Car Free Day.
Sixty employees took part in the environmentally friendly venture last month and raised �110 for Cloakham Lawn Sports Centre after donating money for empty parking space.
Employee Craig Steele won a �50 gift voucher for the most inventive way of getting to work - he walked, caught a bus, and rode his daughter's pink scooter - all the way from Weymouth.
The company also provided a free mini bus service, which ran from Beer to Axminster.
