FUND-RAISERS got kitted out in helmets and fluorescent jackets for a charity cycle ride to spread awareness about head injuries.

More than 50 cyclists took part in a sponsored cycle ride between Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich to raise money for head injuries charity Headway.

Last year, the West Suffolk and Ipswich branches of Headway raised £2,000 and this year they hope to beat that total and raise £3,000.

David Taylor, manager of West Suffolk Headway, said: “It went really well. We were lucky with the weather, it started to rain but not until the majority of people had arrived in Ipswich.”

This year’s ride marks 25 years since the West Suffolk branch of Headway opened. The charity offers help and advice to people who have suffered brain injuries.
