Bikers bring good cheer to Docklands

Bikers bring good cheer to Docklands Image

About 2000 motorcyclists descended on Docklands in December to deliver toys for needy families.

The Motorcycle Riders Association’s annual Toy Run finished in Docklands for the first time on December 12 and, despite being hampered by rain, organisers have declared the event a success.

The event was organised by the Docklands Chamber of Commerce, and president Keith Rankin wants the event back again next year.

“We would have liked more people there but we don’t have any control over the weather,” Mr Rankin said.

“But the bikes were brilliant, the number of toys donated for the Salvos was astronomical and we achieved what we wanted, which was to put Docklands in the spotlight.”

“We’ve learned a lot through the experience and we’re keen to have it back this year,” he said.

“We think it was quite an investment in Docklands’ future,” Mr Rankin said.
