Bik­ers cruise in with a cheque

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

There was noth­ing aim­less or in­ci­den­tal about a trip Toko­roa Ran­dom Rid­ers made to the Waikato Hos­pi­tal.

The staunch- look­ing bik­ers dropped off a cheque for $1500 to the West­pac Res­cue He­li­copter’s base in De­ce­mebr.

Club sec­re­tary Thomas Lee said thank­fully none of their rid­ers had ever called on its ser­vices but they ap­pre­ci­ated the work the life-sav­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion has done.

The money was raised dur­ing an an­nual ride the group ven­tured out on – last year it do­nated $ 1000 to the same cause.

They ar­ranged to de­liver the funds in per­son while out on a Sun­day cruise, how­ever, the he­li­copter was tasked to a mis­sion just be­fore their ar­rival.
