BORDER bikers have been invited to participate in the Salvation Army’s 25th annual Christmas toy run, staged by Albury’s Party Unlimited motorcycle club.
The run tomorrow will add to the haul of more than $100,000 that has been raised and the 20,000 kilometres travelled over 25 years.
Long-standing Party Unlimited member Nick Toll yesterday urged the biker community to support the charity ride, which will leave from QE II Square in Albury at 10am.
“We would love to have every bike in the region turn up — we’ve had up to 100 bikes some years,” he said.
“We’ve even had the Salvation Army truck three-quarters full with toys before.”
“To know that we make a bit of a difference in giving something to the kids each year. It’s a worthwhile thing.”
Salvation Army officers Russell Anderson and Marco Lupis have been involved in the run for several years, and said that it was a privilege to put a smile on children’s faces.
“We rely on the support of the community,” Mr Lupis said.
“Communities on both sides of the Border have always been generous.”
