Cam­paspe Shire Novem­ber 26

MORE than 300 dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren across Cam­paspe Shire will re­ceive a gift for Christ­mas this year. All thanks to the Ulysses so­cial mo­tor­cy­cle club and the St Vin­cent de Paul so­ci­ety. The or­gan­i­sa­tions held their an­nual toy run on Satur­day, Novem­ber 26, which saw 80 mo­tor­bikes col­lect toys across six towns in­clud­ing Rochester. Ulysses mem­ber Rob Hearn said although he was ex­pect­ing more mo­tor­cy­clists, he was happy with the re­sult. ‘‘It was a re­ally good day, very suc­cess­ful,’’ he said. ‘‘Last year we got presents for about 300 kids and I think we got more this year. There was a hell of a lot of toys. ‘‘We also raised $800 cash with some raf­fles dur­ing the bar­be­cue at Echuca Work­ers and Ser­vices Club.’’ Dis­ad­van­taged par­ents will be able to col­lect the toys at St Mary’s parish hall.

Paul and Linda James are ready to ride.
