Halstead firefighters charity cycle

Halstead firefighters are appealing for donations ahead of a 60 mile cycle for charity.

Sub Officer Steven Byrne and Firefighters Steven Hill, Dean Woodburn, Liam Stanhope and Peter Ballisat are taking part in the Suffolk Fire Ride.

The cycle for the Fire Fighters Charity starts across the border at Sudbury Fire Station on Sunday, June 26.

During the event, Halstead Fire Station will provide a place where riders can stop and enjoy refreshments before they set off again.

Sub O Byrne said: “All five of us are keen cyclists and we enjoy a new challenge. The ride will also raise money for a fantastic cause.

“During the event, Halstead Fire Station will become a feeding station for cyclists. We look forward to welcoming hundreds of riders.”

The Suffolk Fire Ride, now in its second year, gives participants the opportunity to ride 30, 60 or 100 miles.
