Six Ipswich architects have drawn together to raise funds for the town’s hospital.

The team from award-winning KLH Architects, based in Copdock, have signed up for the London to Paris Cycle Ride, which they hope to complete in three days.

KLH Architects employees, Ben Moore, Tom Bryce, Andy Garnham, Bryan Wybrow and company directors, Martyn Goodwin and Robert Keeble, will be setting off from London on Thursday, September 3, and aim to reach Paris by Saturday.

The London to Paris Cycle Ride is an annual charity bike ride organised by Action for Charity. Participants choose between a three- or four-day cycle itinerary covering distances of 290 or 395 miles respectively.
