Headway Suffolk is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its annual sponsored cycle by introducing a 10 mile walking route.

Since the first cycle in 2009, more than £45,000 has been raised for the cause, which supports those with head and brain injuries.

This year, the 28 and 38 mile cycling routes will be on May 12, starting at the charity’s base in Epsilon House, West Road, Ipswich.

Now, a 10 mile walk is on the cards via Felixstowe Road, the University of Suffolk and Suffolk New College and along Woodbridge Road past Ipswich Hospital.

Communications and marketing officer David Crane said: “Last year our tremendous supporters raised a brilliant £8,300 - the most in any single year –and these funds make such a significance to us delivering the variety of high-quality services for local brain injury survivors.”
