Cyclists from across the region came together to ride 200 miles over the weekend – raising over £23,000 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) in the process.
The charity’s Ride for Life saw 16 people bike across three counties, taking in EACH’s hospices at Quidenham in Norfolk, The Treehouse in Ipswich and Milton in Cambridgeshire.
The route started and ended at the home of headline sponsor Johnston Logistics UK, in Snetterton, with overnight stops at Premier Inn Ipswich North and Holiday Inn Cambridge.
Tal Williams, EACH fundraiser, said: “We’d like to say a massive thank you to the group of 16 who rode from Friday to Sunday, as well as the 17 who joined them for individual legs of the ride.
“The phenomenal amount raised will pay for a day of care and support in Cambridgeshire and West Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk and East Essex, with a few thousand pounds to spare!”
EACH cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across East Anglia and supports their families. For both those accessing care and those who have been bereaved, the charity is a lifeline at an unimaginably difficult time. It costs EACH almost £6 million a year to deliver its services and all funds raised through Ride for Life will help.
