A new limited edition green and yellow sweatshirt has been released to celebrate the UCI Rpad World cycling championships coming to Harrogate by a leading independent shop.

Only two Harrogate stores will stock the exclusive range.

Independent shop Violet Store is stocking the HGTE range of unisex organic cotton sweatshirts and T-shirts to raise money for charity and show support for next month's international event.

Harrogate shops urged to 'dress up' for UCI cycling events

Sara Shaw, the owner of Violet Store, which is located at 14 Cheltenham Mount, said: "The UCI Worlds cycling presents a fantastic opportunity for the town and we would like to see that all of our community benefits from this amazing event. Supporting the racing wearing a HGTE green sweatshirt will help to share the love around all of our neighbours.

A donation of £10 from each sweatshirt will go to supporting the work of Harrogate Homeless Project.

As a result, the HGTE range has already raised more than £5,000 for Harrogate Homeless Project.

The sweat shirts and T-shirts are available for a limited time and in limited numbers from Saturday at both Violet and Preyfour clothing store for men and women on Parliament Street.
