Spirit of Christmas hitting road for kids
THE seventh annual motorcycle toy run brought the spirit of Christmas into town with 36 motorcycles delivering children’s gifts to Anglicare on Saturday.
The aim of the toy run is to lend a helping had to disadvantaged children by making a donation to brighten up their Christmas.
A range of gifts for all ages were handed over by the motorbike enthusiasts to Anglicare Children Services.
John Finnigan was instrumental in helping start the toy run and said this year’s event was one of the most successful.
“There were 36 bikes, with some carrying two people so there would be around 45 people taking part,” Mr Finnigan said.
“From our point of view it lets people know we are just average people, we are not big bad bikies.
“It is a great cause and everyone who donates and takes part always feel good because it’s a worthy cause.”
Foster care and kinship practitioner Kait Knights-Edgar said they were funded for only 85 children in care and at the moment there were 9629 children in care in Queensland and 47,926 in Australia.
The toys from the drive are set to go to a foster care camp to make Christmas feel special.
