DENTISTS used pedal power to help raise £300 for Children in Need.

The team at Bupa Dental Care in Ipswich Road took turns cycling on a static bike as part of a Pedal for Pudsey event.

The annual star-studded fundraiser raised £47.9 million for the charity which raises money for disadvantaged young people around the country.

Sarah Lee, practice coordinator, said: "Everyone was really keen to take part and we all enjoyed getting our sweat on for a good cause."
