Fenland solicitors take part in charity ride for East Anglian hospice

TWO Fenland solicitors took part in a charity motorcycle ride organised by HSBC in aid of an East Anglian hospice.

Iain Grimes and Neil John, both solicitors from Fraser Dawbarns, were among 15 riders from across the region who started in Cambridge and rode to Felixstowe in a mixture of weather and on a variety of roads.

They raised money for St Nicholas’ Hospice in Bury St Edmunds, which they visited during their trip.

The day began dry in Cambridge with a sprinkling of rain on the way to Bury St Edmunds. However, the heavens opened on the approach to Felixstowe and it rained continuously while the group enjoyed a plate of fish and chips before heading home.

Mr Grimes and Mr John covered more than 200 miles on the day. The group raised more than �1,000 including participation in a charity raffle, the star prize an AGV Valentino Rossi replica helmet.

Mr John said after the ride: “Iain and I were delighted to be invited by Carl Crame of HSBC to join this charity ride. It was a great opportunity to team up with fellow professionals in East Anglia and raise money for such a worthy cause.”

Both riders have confirmed their involvement for a similar event next year, when it is hoped an even larger sum can be raised.
