Forget Santa’s sleigh, Christmas presents will be delivered off motorbikes in Logan this weekend at the annual toy run.
It is on again and the cause is a good one! The annual Ulysses Christmas Toy Run will grace the streets of Logan City on Sunday 1 December to support the Logan City Council’s Mayor’s Giving Tree.
Every year the social Ulysses Motorcycle Club conducts its Toy Run, with the aim of spreading cheer to children who are disadvantaged.
Debbie from the Ulysses Motorcycle Club says to date, the collection is going fine.
“It’s a good cause and everything that we collect goes straight to the Logan City Council. They have a Christmas tree appeal which benefits six charities.”
When asked if there was any concern about donating because of the anti-bikie legislation, Debbie says the club did not want this good cause to become mixed up with the legislation issues.
“This is our fourth year and we have up to 80 riders annually. The gifts are going to people who can’t afford it, that’s what we are trying to achieve. There is always someone worst off than you,” Debbie says.
The Ulysses Motorcycle Club is hoping for fine weather and will proceed as long as it is safe to be on the road.
The public is urged to donate unwrapped gifts for children aged up to 17-years-old for the Ulysses Motorcycle Club Toy Run.
There will be a celebration at the end of the run, with children able to get their faces painted, bounce in the jumping castles and even meet Mrs Clause.
Will you be donating to the Toy Run this year?
