A newly-formed fund-raising committee at West Suffolk Hospital has unveiled plans for a cycle event next year catering for all ages and abilities.

The hospital’s new Charity Special Events Committee, made up of staff and members of the community, is planning ‘West Suffolk Spin’ on Sunday, May 29.

Starting and finishing at Nowton Park and covering large parts of the hospital’s catchment area, the event will incorporate a family fun ride as well as distances of 25, 50 and 100 miles.

Paul Rayner, inaugural chairman of the fund-raising committee, said: “We want to organise events that will have a strong health and well-being nature and also inclusive to all.

“The fun ride will be great for children and families, but the 50 and 100-mile routes will also offer a great challenge for keen cyclists.”

Revel Outdoors have agreed to be the main sponsor for the event as well as County Cllr Sarah Stamp.

Mr Rayner, who has raised more than £30,000 for the hospital in two years, added: “It was an honour to be asked to be the first chairman - it took all of a nano-second to say yes.”

Other members of the committee are hospital staff members Kerri Welham, Jo Fox, Marcus Powling, Chris Lockwood and Sally Daniels as well as Cllr Robert Everitt and Lucy Newell, joint owner of The Coffee House on Moreton Hall.
