Ride for Life saw 28 cyclists visit EACH’s three hospices, Ipswich; Milton in Cambridgeshire, and Quidenham, over three day days.

Another three participants completed part of the ride.

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 group set off from Johnston Logistics UK, the event’s sponsors, in Snetterton on Friday and arrived back where they started on Sunday afternoon.
