Hundreds raised by Ride of Respect

More than a hundred bikers took part in an annual event to mark the role of front line troops while raising money for charity.

The East Anglian Ride of Respect, on Sunday, raised more than �1,000 for the Royal British Legion when bikers took part in a ride from Mildenhall to RAF Honington.

The route also took in RAF Lakenheath and the Elveden war memorial and the day finished with a welcome hog roast.

This was the second year the ride had been held and was run to coincide with the Ride of Respect in Royal Wootton Bassett

Event organiser, Steve Charlton, from the Dereham and Breckland Bikers Motorcycle Club, said, “It is great that the event took place and I am so pleased that so many have turned out to support this worthy cause.”

RAF Honington is the home of the RAF Regiment who is celebrating its 70th Anniversary this year.
