Another Roaring Success!
Moorlanders MCC held our 14th Easter Egg Run this week, in association with Widows Sons Kernow, and we were amazed at the response from the local biking community. Despite inclement weather, over 500 bikers rolled onto Davidstow Airfield in the early hours of Easter Sunday.
The Egg Run raises money for local children’s charities – Action for Children, Little Harbour (CHSW), the ARB special needs units of Camelford and St Stephens, Launceston primary schools and Bowden Derra care home.
‘With all that’s going on in the economy, we never expected to get close to what we raised last year – yet we knew the charities would need it even more,’ said Richard Hallett, Vice Chairman of Moorlanders MCC, ‘but we’re looking set to reach £4,500 and beat it! It’s a true testament to the big hearted nature of bikers.’
The Egg Run took the motorbikes on a 100 mile, safely marshalled tour around north and south east Cornwall, calling at Action For Children, Par to deliver chocolate eggs donated by the bikers. A fun packed end event was hosted by Bowden Derra care home, with more money raised through a raffle and tombola. Local band, Stoned Zuchinni & the Adrenaline kindly provided musical entertainment at no charge – all helping to the amount raised.
The Egg Run would not be the success it is without the kind support we receive from local business and organsiations.
Thank you to all those who are supporting our 2012 Egg Run.
