It’s not too late for locals to support the Inverell Salvation Army Toy Run, which is shaping up to be the biggest for many years.
New toys can be dropped off at FDB’s, Ditton’s Pharmacy- the Wade Street Store, the Imperial Hotel and Inverell Motorcycles before the ride leaves 10am, Saturday, December 8.
In addition to the toy run, there will also be a poker run with entry cost set at a $25 donation to the Salvation Army.
Motorcycle riders and cars are welcome to join in, and are not required to join the poker run portion of the event.
All toys and money raised will be donated directly to the Inverell Salvation Army for their Christmas appeal.
The run will begin at Country Kitchen, opposite the town hall, taking registrations from 8.45am.
Organisers of the event will be set up bright and early serving delicious bacon and egg burgers and tea and coffee before riders head out.
A 240 kilometre round trip, the run will stop at the Deepwater Inn for lunch and finish at the Imperial Hotel, Inverell.
Last year, around 70 motorcycle riders were generous enough to take part in the ride to raise money and collect toys for the Salvation Army.
The ride was dubbed a huge success with $1700 in cash raised.
The annual event his hosted by Viking Breed SMC, Inverell Motorcycle Restorers, Odin’s Warriors MC, Ulysses Club of Inverell and supported by Inverell Motorcycles.
