Local vets take part in a Suffolk cycle marathon for charity

Staff at Stowe Veterinary Group are set to raise more than £3,000 for the charity St Elizabeth Hospice by cycling the circumference of Suffolk.

Veterinary surgeons Roger Harvey and Ella Canham will undertake the gruelling two-day ride on the weekend (June 4 and 5) o in support of their friend Sue Cobbold.

Sue was diagnosed with cancer in March 2011 and has chosen to support St Elizabeth Hospice who continue to provide amazing support for both her and her family.

Joined by a small group of Sue’s family and friends, Ella and Roger aim to cycle 220 miles around Suffolk.

They will start and finish in the village of Old Newton, where Sue lives, passing through Thetford, East Bergholt, Bawdsey and Southwold along the way.

Roger said: “It’s going to be a tough couple of days, which will include the furthest I’ve ever cycled in one day, but that is nothing compared to Sue’s brave efforts battling this dreadful condition.
