Marcus Hilsdon, Master of Thames Valley Motorcycle Lodge 9885 said:
“Several members of the Thames Valley Motorcycle Lodge acted as marshals for the Reading Toy Run on the 6th of December this year and several others took part in the Run itself as well. The organisers officially requested the help of TVML and we are very pleased to help them”.
Marcus continued: “This is becoming a regular yearly event for the TVML. We meet up at Sindlesham and then go together to join The Run at it’s starting point at Foster wheeler’s in Shinfield. This run is very popular and last year broke the Guiness World Record for the size of the event. ( I am the proud owner of my own Guiness World Record Certificate)”
The Run ends up at the Barnados Childrens home and the whole of the route from The Foster Wheeler car park to the Barnados home took place on closed roads lined with well wishers, who came out with their families to watch the motorcycles pass. Most of the 2000+ riders were in fancy dress and all took at least one toy to be donated to children throughout England.
