Dozens of riders were in tune at the weekend as they took part in a key fundraiser for a Lynn mental health charity group.

Organisers estimate that around 80 people participated in the annual bike ride staged by the Friends of the King’s Lynn Samaritans at Sandringham on Sunday.

This year’s ride had a musical theme and many of the participants donned an array of suitable fancy dress before setting out on routes of either eight or 14 miles.

Friends group chairman Jenny Storf said: “As always, it was wonderful to see so many people supporting this traditional event which has now been running close to 40 years.

“This a very family friendly event and everyone seemed to have a great time.

“This is one of our main fund raising activities and plays an essential and important part in ensuring that King’s Lynn Samaritans continues to offer much needed support to people who need someone to listen to them.

“Last year alone local Samaritans’ volunteers received over 23,000 contacts.”

Prizes were presented for the best fancy dress costumes, with Team Matilda claiming the top prize and The Rocky Horrors as runners-up.
