Cyclists climbed into the saddle and used their pedal power to raise funds for three charities.
St Nicholas Hospice Care, which provides care and support for those in the final chapters of their lives across West Suffolk and Thetford, has received a £1,270 boost thanks to a charity cycle ride organised by estate agents David Burr.
Hayley Lambert, from David Burr, visited the hospice to hand over the funds raised from the ride, which saw cyclists tackle either a 25 -or 50-mile route on Sunday, 30 September.
Hayley, who is also one of the charity’s Hospice Neighbours, said the business had organised the ride, which also raised funds for Henry’s Holiday Help and the National Autistic Society because they wanted to do something worthwhile and give back to their local community.
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.
