Ancestors MCC – Christmas Toy Run

ancestorstoyrun2013smallThe Ancestors MCC has just announced the date for this year’s Annual Christmas Toy Run.

This year’s date is Sunday – 8th December 2013 and as usual leaves Ballygowan Roundabout at 1pm.

The Toy Run raises funds and collects toys for the Children’s Ward at the Ulster Hospital, Dundonald.

All the money raised goes directly towards the sick children in the hospital to try and make their stay as comfortable as possible and enables the staff to buy toys and decorations for Christmas and Birthdays.

Riders at last year’s run, which was the 21st toy run, raised £2,080 plus change as well as donating a van load of toys and gifts for the hospital.

The minimum donation asked from riders taking part in the run is £5 Per Bike and a toy if possible.

All toys will be gladly received with thanks although no soft toys please for hygenic reasons.

Although I must say, the temperature at last years run was mild for the time of year.

I only had to switch the heated grips on once, maybe it was dashing about like a red nose reindeer, having been roped in to do a bit of marshalling, that kept the chill away!

So here is hoping for a mild dry day this year!
