EGG RUN 2012

Moorlanders MCC Patch

Moorlanders MCC Egg Run 2012

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.

‘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 Easter Bunny rides into Bowden DerraThe 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.

‘Make sure you put 31st March 2013 in your diary,’ Richard Hallett added, ‘cause we’ll be back next Easter Sunday for an even better Egg Run!  And if you want to be part of that, come along to one of our meetings at the King’s Head, Five Lanes, Altarnun.’

Our Photo Album for the Egg Run can be found on Facebook, and the Egg Run Video is on YouTube.
