Ipswich: Triangle Motorcycle Club’s annual ride out for Ipswich Hospital

ABOUT 150 bikers marked the bank holiday with a special ride in aid of a ward at Ipswich Hospital.

The Ipswich Triangle Motorcycle Club held its annual motorcycle charity run yesterday to raise money for the Needham Ward at Ipswich Hospital – a ward specialising in trauma and orthopaedic treatment.

The group raised about �1,400 for the ward through the event.

The generous bikers once again gathered at Orwell Crossing Lorry Park on the A14 to take part in the annual bank holiday event, which saw them ride to The White Lodge pub in Attleborough, Norfolk.

Everyone taking part in the ride paid �5 per bike and on arrival at the pub in Attleborough, the riders were treated to live music and a barbecue.
