WHEN catering staff at Ickworth House’s West Wing wanted to raise money for charity, they went visiting.

The four-strong team from Sodexo, the caterers at the West Wing events venue in the Ickworth House, aimed to cycle to as many of the National Trust’s eastern properties as possible in 24 hoursin aid of Sodexo’s global Stop Hunger nutrition education charity.

The riders were conference and banqueting manager Chris Swallow, supervisor Daisy Jones and catering assistants Matthew Costello Clarke and Alex Johnson.

At least one was riding throughout the 24 hours.

They left Bury St Edmunds’ Theatre Royal on Tuesday and visited Ickworth House, Melford Hall, Lavenham Guildhall, Flatford Mill, Sutton Hoo, Orford Ness, Dunwich, the Elizabethan House in Great Yarmouth and Horsey Wind Pump and have raised at least £700.
