Mayor of Haverhill delighted with the support shown for his charity cycle ride for the Joshua Tarrant Trust




An incident-free journey was shared by the mayor of Haverhill and three fellow cyclists who pedalled 46 miles in one day last week to raise money for charity.

Cllr Tony Brown departed from the Cornhill in Ipswich last Friday morning and stopped off at Hadleigh and Sudbury before ending their journey at the Haverhill Arts Centre at 4pm.

He was joined along the way by Alex Webb, Darren Anderson and Sean Tarrant, all trustees of Cllr Brown's mayoral charity of the year, the Joshua Tarrant Trust., founded in memory of Sean's son, Joshua, who died in 2012 of a brain tumour at the age of 16.

Cllr Brown said of the day: "It was a great success.

"We started in Ipswich , then went on to Hadleigh, Sudbury then back to Haverhill.

"It was quite a cold day, but all arrived back in Haverhill at 4pm after 46 miles without any hiccups.
