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.

Managing director Ian Styles said: "Sustainability is important to our company and encouraging employees to continue using alternative modes of transport is a top priority for us.

"We will continue supporting Devon Car Free Day in the coming years and hope our staff will too.
