Toy run helps Salvos appeal

TOYS, clothing, money, non-perishable food — anything you can spare is needed to help bring Christmas cheer to Border children.

The Salvation Army’s 26th annual Christmas toy run in Albury will be staged tomorrow at QEII Square.

Hosted by Albury’s Party Unlimited motorcycle club, the event has raised $58,500 over the past 26 years.

The figure does not include donations of food, toys or clothing.

Motorcycle club secretary Craig Hastings is asking residents to dig deep and look around the home for items that could be donated.

“It’s getting tougher, but people are still pretty generous,” he said.

“We will collect donations of new or pre-loved clothes and toys, as well as money donations and non-perishable foods.”

Club members will collate the donations and make a presentation to the Salvation Army from 10.30am.

It will be followed by a 100-kilometre motorcycle ride, including a lunch stop.
