Easter Sunday saw the annual
spectacle that is the Moorlanders’ Easter Egg Run, drawing hundreds of
motorbikes from across Cornwall and Devon. Held in
association with Widows Sons Kernow, the Egg Run unites bikers to raise money
for local children’s charities.
Moorlanders Motorcycle Club worked
with Trethorne Leisure Park
this year to organise a day of family fun for young carers and families in
crisis that are supported by Action for Children Cornwall. “We had an outstanding response from the
families,” said Graham Holtum, Moorlanders’ Chairman, “57 parents and children
spent the day at Trethorne and came out to meet us as we made our half-way stop
to deliver chocolate eggs to them.”
Action for Children is one
of the charities that will receive part of the £4,000 raised by the
Egg Run. The others are Little Harbour
(CHSW), the ARB special needs units of Camelford and St Stephens, Launceston
primary school and Bowden Derra care home.
The Egg Run finished at Bowden
Derra care home, with a lively event that grows year on year with a bar-b-que,
stalls, awards for the bikers and live music by local band, Strange Brood.
Moorlanders MCC would like
to thank everyone – local shops, businesses and all the bikers for their
continued support in making this event a great success.
