Calling all Bikers – Motorcycle Run

Calling all bikers! St Elizabeth Hospice’s Motorcycle Run takes place in June. Hundreds of bikers from all over Suffolk are expected to sign up for the event which takes place on Sunday 24th June to raise money for the charity.

Bikers will set off from Stonham Barns, near Stowmarket, and finish at Felixstowe Motorcycle show, where there will be lots of dealers and clubs in attendance.

It will be a scenic route through the countryside.

Several hundred bikers are expected to attend and raise thousands of pounds for the Hospice, which cares for people in Suffolk with a progressive illness and provides support for their families.

The event is supported by Rob Day and Derek Barker, of Suffolk Advanced Motorcyclists, a charity which aims to improve riding standards, and Ray Walters, owner of Orwell Motorcycles in Ipswich.

Mr Barker said, “We hope the 2012 St Elizabeth Hospice Motorcycle Run will be as well supported as the event has been in previous years.”

The Hospice’s community fundraising team leader Rachael Maidment said, “We were overwhelmed by the amount of people who took part last year and wanted to raise money for the Hospice. The bikers were so generous and there was a great atmosphere on the day. Thank you all so much and we hope you will be back this year, along with some people taking part for the first time.”

It costs just £5 to take part and bikers are encouraged to get sponsorship. Bikers cannot take part unless they have registered. To sign up online visit www.stelizabethhospice.org.uk. For more information call 01473 723600 or email fundraising@stelizabethhospice.org.uk

St Elizabeth Hospice is an independent charity and relies on the support of the local community to raise money towards its £8.7 million annual running costs.
