Cyclists raised money for three good causes after climbing into the saddle for a charity ride last month.

The event, which was organised by estate agents David Burr, took place on Sunday, September 30, with cyclists tackling either a 25-mile or 50-mile route.

The ride raised funds for St Nicholas Hospice Care, Henry’s Holiday Help and the National Autistic Society.

Hayley Lambert, from David Burr, visited St Nicholas Hospice Care last week to hand over £1,270 to the charity.

Emma Clements, the hospice’s major events fundraiser, said: “We are so grateful to David Burr for organising the event and of course everyone who took part on the day.

“As a local charity we rely on the generosity of our local community and businesses and the funds raised by this event will help us continue to fund the care the people we support need.

“Thank you to everyone who helped make the ride such a success.”

David Burr hopes the ride, which followed a rather hilly route around the rolling countryside around Hawkedon, could become an annual event.

A programme to turn around Suffolk’s special education needs (SEN) provision has been outlined – with an “innovative” pilot set to spearhead the measures.

The concept of time has baffled great thinkers for thousands of years.

A former motorbike showroom in Bury St Edmunds could be turned into a mix of retail units and flats.

Two drivers had a lucky escape near Newmarket after a collision left their vehicles badly damaged.

Millennials face an ‘impossible task’ buying a first house first home in Ipswich, with the average starter home in the town costing £60,000 more than the national average.

They were a mainstay of 1950s and 60s Britain who, in the days before 24-hour convenience stores and online shopping, provided an unrivalled doorstep service.

The Citizens Advice network in Suffolk says it is “dismayed” by council proposals to end its funding support across the county.
