RUNNERS from a local firm went back to the 1950's to take part in a charity run.

Six members of staff, from Episys, a technology firm based in Royston, dressed as Teddy Boys to take part in the Chariots of Fire run around Cambridge.

A spokesman for the company said: "Our Chief Executive, Derek Buchanan, is a big fan of 1950's rock 'n' roll music, and decided that the six members of the Episys relay team would go down a storm in their Teddy Boy jackets."

The runners - Jamie Pepper, Mark Teasdale, Neil Southwell, Julie Herron, Steve Godfrey, and Neill Flack - were raising cash for Cam-mind, a mental healthcare charity which has been supporting people with mental health problems in the Cambridge area since 1908.
