A Holbeach motorbike enthusiast is organising a 100-mile charity bike in support of a friend who survived a horror road crash.

Sue Wilson, a member of Fenland Motorcycle Club, is expecting dozens of riders to set off from Peterborough to Great Yarmouth on September 29 in a bid to raise at least £4,500 for East Anglian Air Ambulance.

The bike ride comes after Sue’s friend and fellow club member, Kelly Wiltshire (32) of Wisbech, suffered two broken wrists, neck and pelvis injuries when her motorcycle crashed into a lamp post on the A47 in King’s Lynn last month.

She was airlifted to hospital by an EAAA helicopter and is recovering at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn.

Sue, a health care worker in Peterborough, said: “After Kelly had the accident, I was chatting with someone at work and they asked me to organise the bike ride.

“I’ve sent out 300 invitation and people from Holbeach, Spalding and other places have said they’ll come.

“We’re looking to have all types of motorbikes involved on the day and the police are happy to help us as long as everyone rides sensibly.

“Kelly is doing as well as can be expected and she’s right behind the bike ride.”
