Hundreds of motorcyclists rode in convoy on Sunday 23rd June to raise money for local charity St Elizabeth Hospice.
Starting at Stonham Barns, near Stowmarket, 300 bikers rode 30 miles through the scenic countryside of Suffolk, through Framlingham, Tunstall, Rendlesham, around the outskirts of Woodbridge, Melton and Martlesham and then along the A14 to finish at the Felixstowe Motorcycle Show in the town centre.
Emily Sullivan, Event Organiser, said: “Despite the showers it was a great turn out of bikers. It was such an amazing sight to see so many motorcyclists all riding for St Elizabeth Hospice.
“They were all so friendly and generous and helped raise £3,000 for the Hospice which will help us continue to provide local Hospice care to local people.”
This was the fifth sponsored Motorcycle Run for the Hospice, and the event was supported by Suffolk Advanced Motorcyclists and Orwell Motorcycles.
St Elizabeth Hospice improves life for people living with a progressive illness in East Suffolk and South Norfolk. Its services are provided free of charge but are not free to provide.
The Hospice costs millions of pounds a year to run and relies on fundraising events such as the Motorcycle Run, as well as donations and the income generated from its 23 shops, to meet these costs.
The Hospice’s next event will be the Suffolk Coast Bike Ride on Sunday 4th August, click here for more information.
