Cold steel and warm hearts will be on full display this Sunday as a group of local bikers rally the troops to help those in need.

The New England Bikers Tamworth SMC are holding their annual Blanket Run for St Vincents de Paul.

President Ceejay Canham is asking anyone interested in going for the social ride to attend, as well as asking for any donations of blankets, jackets and any other preloved cold weather gear to “help those less fortunate get through the cold winter.”

“There is this image of bikers, but we are not all bad, we have big hearts and do anything to help out, so come and join us,” he said.

“It doesn’t matter who you are or what you ride.”

Leaving at 10am on Sunday from the Duri Road St Vinnies, the group will ride a regional loop with a stop for lunch at a yet to be announced destination.

Registration is $10.

“We have about 24 members in our club and meet every first Thursday of the month at Joe Maguires,” Mr Canham said.

“We are a really friendly social club that does a fair bit to help out the community and people that are less fortunate, anyone interested in joining us should get in contact.”
