Suffolk police officers will go from bobbies on the beat to bobbies on their bikes after signing up for a charity cycle in aid of West Suffolk Hospital.
More than a dozen officers from the Roads Policing and Firearms Operations Unit will use pedal power for the West Suffolk Spin, which is raising money for six areas of the hospital.
More than 170 people have signed up for the ride on May 29 to take on a 25, 50 or 100 mile course around the hospital’s catchment area plus a free family fun ride around Nowton Park.
Ryan Harris, road policing officer from the unit, said: “Most people within the road traffic unit work closely with West Suffolk Hospital so we know what a great job they do. It is a great event focusing on health and wellbeing as well as raising money for a local cause.”
Paul Rayner, chairman of the WSH Charity’s special events committee, added: “We’re delighted with how the first ever West Suffolk Spin has gone. But it is still not too late to sign up.” Supported by Revel Outdoors and the Bury Free Press, entry is just £25. Visit www.wsh.nhs.uk/Spin
