Over £30,000 has been raised for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) by 26 intrepid cyclists who rode 200-plus miles across the region
Ride for Life raises over £30,000 for EACH
EACH’s Ride for Life started last Friday (20 July) and finished on Sunday at the home of headline sponsor Johnston Logistics UK, in Snetterton. There were overnight stops in between at Premier Inn Ipswich North and Premier Inn Cambridge A14 J32. The route through the East Anglian countryside also saw riders visit EACH’s three hospices - The Treehouse in Ipswich, Milton just north of Cambridge and Quidenham in the Norfolk countryside.
The main peloton was joined by seven other cyclists, doing individual legs of ride, over the course of the three days.
Emma Benstead, EACH Norfolk Events Fundraiser, said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part across the three days. It really was a phenomenal effort and I believe everyone really enjoyed the event.
“The money raised will pay for almost two days of care and support in Cambridgeshire and West Essex, Norfolk, and Suffolk and East Essex.
“This wouldn’t be possible without the continued support of Johnston Logistics UK, so another big thank you to them.”
EACH cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across the region and supports their families. For both those accessing care and those who have been bereaved, EACH is a lifeline at an unimaginably difficult time. For more information, go to www.each.org.uk.
