As Winter rolls in the local Bikers roll out, collecting goods to help those that need it most.

This weekend the New England branch of Bikers Australia are getting together for the annual Blanket Run, in conjunction with the local St Vincent de Paul Society.

Chairman Ceejay Canham has called on the local community to dig deep to donate any pre-loved blankets, winter clothing, and non-perishable foods to the cause.

“At this time of year people might be a bit short on gear over Winter,” Mr Canham said.

“If we can help them out a bit we will, because that is what we do – and we get to have a good ride and a bit of fun at the same time.” 

Donations can be made to Vinnies, or pick-ups can be arranged this Friday or Saturday by calling Ceejay on 0459614274.
