Riders bring festive cheer

MORE than 120 charity-minded motorcyclists will help put smiles on the faces of dozens of Tamworth children this Christmas.

The local Ulysses Club – led by honorary member for the day Santa – held its 28th annual toy run on Saturday.

Departing the Calala Inn at 1pm, the convoy ambled through town on its way to the Salvation Army’s headquarters on Goonoo Goonoo Rd.

Each rider embellished their bike with Christmas decorations and carried a present to be gifted to a local child.

Club president Richard Procter said the day had been a tremendous success and he was pleased with the turnout.

“The atmosphere was really good,” he said.

“People had put a lot of effort into decorating their bikes.

“The toy run is really fulfilling. It gives you a bit of purpose and it’s really rewarding for those taking part.”
