Annual Toy Run Helps Kids Celebrate Christmas

The passion for helping kids in need at Christmas time will see over 200 motorcycle enthusiasts take to the streets of Toowoomba when the Downs Motorcycle Sporting Club (DMCSC) conducts their 28th Annual Toy Run on Sunday (21st December) from Picnic Point.

Bikers from all over the Downs, South East Queensland and northern NSW will converge on Picnic Point from four (4) different starting points before wending their way down through the streets of Toowoomba and out Glenvale Road to the clubhouse headquarters of DMCSC at the Toowoomba Showgrounds.

DMCSC President Nathan Bedoes said there were bikers coming from everywhere. “We’ll have riders from Brisbane, Ipswich, Wondai and even south to Tenterfield joining us for this annual event as well as our Downs riders. Anyone with a motorcycle or scooter is more than welcome to join in. All we ask is for each rider to bring a toy.” Nathan can be contacted for more details on 0437-335124.

Toys from the Toy Run are distributed to local charities, with some to the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation for kids at the Children’s Ward in the Toowoomba Hospital. Bikers will assemble at 10.30am at Lorrimer’s Toyworld in Oakey, Rudd’s Pub at Nobby, Grand Hotel Crows Nest and Target carpark in Gatton. They will all then converge on Picnic Point and meet up with the Toowoomba motorcyclists at 11.30 to leave Picnic Point at 12.00 midday sharp to ride to the DMCSC headquarters at the Toowoomba Showgrounds.

The Toowoomba West Lions Club & the Toowoomba Hospital Foundation will provide a Sausage Sizzle for a gold coin donation going to the Toowoomba Hospital Children’s Appeal.
