Cyclists are hoping to give the Help for Heroes charity a big boost by taking part in a 50-mile ride through the Suffolk countryside.

Last year the event raised £1,500 for the soldiers’ charity, and this year organiser Karen Stratford is hoping more people will take part on Sunday, June 2 and help to raise an even bigger sum.

She said: “Last year was just brilliant and many of the riders said they enjoyed it so much they would really love to do it all over again.”

The ride sets off at 9.30am from the Hand in Hand pub, High Road, Trimley St Martin – registration is £10 but this is optional if people raise £30 or more sponsorship.

Celebrations will be held at the pub afterwards with a barbecue and a raffle with prizes donated by many business from the Felixstowe area, and riders’ family and friends are welcome to go along.
