Lowestoft police in charity coast trip

Two senior police officers from Lowestoft will travel the entire coast of Britain on their motorcycles to raise 760445909fd195a3744mmoney for charity.

Dave Wrighting, a senior scenes of crime officer and DC David Holmes will take on the challenge, similar to that undertaken by Ewan McGregor in his BBC documentary.

They will be joined on the 13 day trip by Arnie Debenham, from Yarmouth and Andrew Adams, an advanced riding instructor from Sussex, and will be raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The trip will start at Ness Point in Lowestoft on August 23 and the group will ride as close to the coastline as possible, following road routes within view of the sea when they can. It is estimated that they will need to complete around 300 miles a day to finish the journey in the 13 day target.

Mr Wrighting said: “It might not seem a difficult task, but we will be riding for between six and eight hours a day for a fortnight. Anyone who has seen the series The Long Way Down will know how demanding this is both mentally and physically.”

Overnight stops are planned in Robin Hoods Bay, St Andrews, Inverness, Ullapool, Oban, Kirkcudbright, Whitehaven, Heysham, Caernarfon, Carmarthen, Barnstaple, Plymouth and Peacehaven.

“We figure it will cost each of us nearly £1,000 to take part, so we want to make sure we raise lots of money for charity in the process. Both of these causes are really worthwhile, so please dig deep,” added Mr Wrighting.
