Rev Up For Hospice's Motorcycle Run

Calling all bikers! A date has been set for St Elizabeth Hospice's Motorcycle Run. Hundreds of bikers from Suffolk are expected to sign up for the event which

takes place on Sunday June 26 to raise money for the charity.

There is a new route this year. Bikers will set off from a location close to 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 stan- dards, and Ray Walters, owner of Orwell Motorcycles in Ipswich. Mr Barker said: "We hope the 2011 St Elizabeth Hospice Motorcycle Run will be as well supported as the event has been in previous years." The Hospice's senior community fundraiser Rachael Mittell 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.
