Crazee's Orwell Challenge - Help Save a Part of Suffolk Heritage
Monday, 14th May 2018 13:10
Club mascot Crazee will once again be getting on his bike to raise money for charity when he cycles the 15-mile Orwell Challenge route on Sunday 17th June.
Having taken part in aid of a local children's charity last year, this time around he is looking to raise money for the Suffolk Punch Trust at Hollesley Bay, the world's oldest and largest stud farm for the horses which have been bred here for more than 250 years.
Experts predict the Suffolk Punch, which appears on the Town badge, could be extinct within 10 years with the Rare Breeds Survival Trust (RBST) having placed it at number three on its list of farm breeds mostly likely to die out.
In addition to his matchday duties, Crazee has also raised cash for local charities in the past having zip-wired across the pitch at Portman Road, sat on all 30,310 seats in the ground and taken part in the Orwell Cycle Ride three times and Sport Relief walk twice.

Six Was the Best by SpiritOfJohn
When Kevin Beattie's book, The Beat, was published in 1998 there were a few informal signing sessions arranged. As I was a schoolboy in the 70s, Kevin was a footballing hero of mine, so I thought I would brave the crowds and get in the queue for his autograph at Brannigan's in Ipswich. My Mum was also a big fan, so we decided to get there early and wait in line.

If there's one lesson that should be learned from Ipswich's match against Brentford, it's that sometimes you should stick with what you know.
A Driven Individual and - So Far - a Serial Winner by monty_radio
In such a day as this when allowing your new manager and regime 10 games is considered the height of patience and sense and, by some, lenient nonsense, Paul Hurst is naturally incurring fans' spoken and written doubts after seven - albeit with an unrecognisable team.
But We’re Not Playing Derby by NormEmerges
As we head into the derby game against Norwich, it seems curious to name it after a completely different town.
