A charity cycle ride through the Suffolk countryside has raised over £30,000 to fund research to help children and young people.  

The Suffolk Sunrise event, which raises money for Action Medical Research was all the more vital this year after the charity saw its income diminish overnight, and all events cancelled since March.

The event offered a range of distances for riders to choose from including the Cool (42 miles) and Classic (65 miles) routes, which took participants though through beautiful Suffolk countryside and villages, including Hasketon, Parham and Otley.
