Stowmarket: Friends organise charity event for Jack Cocksedge

A FUNDRAISING event has been organised in honour of Jack Cocksedge, the 18-year-old who died in a motorbike accident last week.

Emergency services tried to save Jack whose motorbike collided with ‘street furniture’ in Stowmarket on Wednesday, July 11, but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Now, his friends are planning to meet at Tesco in Gun Cotton Way, Stowmarket, between 8-9pm on Saturday and then drive to the Orwell Crossing Lorry Park off the A14 at Nacton.

During the course of the evening a collection will be made for charity.

Jack’s family have said that he will be “sadly missed by all his family, extended family and many friends”.

The teenager, who lived in Bridge Street, Stowmarket, was riding his KTM motorcycle in Gipping Way, Stowmarket, when the accident happened.

The funeral service will be held today at the West Suffolk Crematorium at 2.15pm.
