The charity’s Ride for Life will see 28 cyclists visit EACH’s three hospices in Ipswich; Milton in Cambridgeshire, and Quidenham.

Another three cyclists are completing part of the ride.

Leaving at 8.30am this morning from Johnston Logistics UK, the event’s sponsors, in Snetterton, the team will hope to finish their journey where they started on Sunday afternoon.

The cyclists will be able to weave through the scenic countryside of East Anglia as they aim to ride between 60 to 70 miles each day.

EACH cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions and supports their families. It costs the charity almost £6 million a year to deliver its service.

The charity is currently building a new £10m hospice, the nook, in Framingham Earl, close to Norwich. It will replace the Quidenham one.
