Revved up for fes­tive Toy Run

Broome Advertiser - - News - Robert Dougherty

A mov­ing col­umn of jin­gling Christ­mas bells and deaf­en­ing mo­tor­cy­cle en­gines is def­i­nitely an odd mix, how­ever next month the up­roar will her­ald Broome’s an­nual Toy Run.

Broome Mo­tor­cy­cle En­thu­si­asts bik­ers and car fa­nat­ics will trek through town spread­ing Christ­mas cheer as they sup­port dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren on De­cem­ber 9.

The pa­rade will travel from Ca­ble Beach carpark at 8.30am and co­in­cide with Broome Road­Wise Com­mit­tee’s Belt Up Bar­bie with a sausage siz­zle, give­aways and dis­plays at Male Oval at 9am.

BME mem­ber Andy Bubb said he en­cour­aged res­i­dents to get in­volved in the fes­tive at­mos­phere by meet­ing with their dec­o­rated bikes or cars for the pre-run brief­ing at 8.15am.

“It’s def­i­nitely on. We are go­ing to leave from Ca­ble Beach carpark dead on 8.30am on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 9,” he said.

“Ev­ery­one is buy­ing an un­wrapped toy for the kids and we are go­ing to ride around town, de­liver the toys.”

Com­mit­tee chair­man War­ren Fryer said ev­ery­one had a role to play in road safety.

“We ask in­di­vid­u­als to join the cause and play their part by com­ply­ing with all road rules, be­ing alert and be­hav­ing safely on the roads” he said .

“Come along, grab a free road rib­bon and sausage, and find out more about what we are do­ing and how you can con­trib­ute to road safety.”

The event is fol­lowed closely by the com­bined emer­gency ser­vices an­nual Lol­lyRun, where vol­un­teers dress up as Santa in their re­lated res­cue ve­hi­cles and dis­trib­ute sweets to chil­dren from 3-7pm on De­cem­ber 10.
