Scunny Bikers set to deliver a ‘cracking’ good time

Children on the Disney ward at Scunthorpe hospital are to receive a bumper load of goodies thanks to the annual Easter egg run organised by Scunny Bikers.

Motorbikes of all shapes and sizes will be roaring on to the hospital site on Monday April 22 to deliver their special chocolate delights and goodies.

A member of the Scunny Bikers Josh Humphries said: “Collectively as a group we love being able to support the Disney ward with these events. It is wonderful to think we can help bring a smile to a child on the ward.”

The bikers will be meeting at The Old Farmhouse pub, Doncaster Road, Scunthorpe, at 10am and will set off at 11am collecting donations of toys and sweets from four local supermarkets along the way.

Josh added: “If anyone would like to support our annual event and could kindly donate an egg, toys or sweets they can drop them off at Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons and The Old farmhouse before the day and we will make sure they get to the youngsters on the ward.”

The bikers will be arriving at the Church Lance entrance of Scunthorpe hospital around 1pm.

Disney ward manager Viki Mcalpine said: “We are truly grateful to Scunny biker’s for organising their fantastic annual Easter egg run. The children’s faces light up when they see all of the fantastic goodies. I would like to say a big thank you all the local supermarkets and the community who supports this event year after year.”
