Firefighters Aaron English, Steve Howard, Richard Lark, Shane Sillett, James Supple and Richard Supple from Wrentham Fire Station near Southwold in Suffolk will cycle from Llangefni in Wales on Monday 18th June arriving five days later at South Lowestoft Fire Station.
Named the ‘Wrentham Fire Ride’, the Wrentham crew will cycle 381 miles from the west of the country to the UK’s most easterly town of Lowestoft in order to raise money and awareness for our Charity and Mind.
James Supple, Crew Commander at Wrentham Station said; “We are incredibly grateful for the support of Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service, other fire stations across the UK who will be providing assistance and to our sponsors without whom the ride would not be possible. We hope to raise £2,000 for our charities and we are extremely grateful to anyone who is able to donate even a small amount.”
On the final day of the challenge, Friday 22 June, the crew will visit the Suffolk County Council offices at Endeavour House in Ipswich to meet Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service colleagues, before cycling the remaining distance to Lowestoft.
