Children being cared for on the Disney Ward at Scunthorpe hospital are to receive sweet treats this year, thanks to the Easter egg run organised by Scunny Bikers.
Motorbikes of all shapes and sizes will be roaring on to the hospital site on Good Friday (7 April), to donate Easter eggs and goodies for the egg-cited children.
The hospital charity – The Health Tree Foundation (HTF) – will support staff to share the gifts between the kids.
A convoy of motorcyclists will meet at The Old Farmhouse pub and restaurant on Doncaster Road at 11am and will leave at 12pm, hopping over to Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons and Asda supermarkets to collect Easter eggs and toys, before arriving at the Church Lane entrance of the hospital between 1.30pm and 1.40pm.
Gavin Stubbs, event organiser, said: “The Easter egg run is always a great event in the Scunny Bikers calendar. We’ll have between 100 and 150 riders taking part this year.
“I want to say a big thank you to the local community for all the donations. Our members absolutely love putting a smile on the children’s’ faces. It’s a wonderful way to celebrate Easter by donating to our local hospital.”
Disney Ward Manager, Vikki McAlpline, said: “We are truly grateful to Scunny Bikers for organising their Easter egg run. The children’s faces light up when they see all of the fantastic donations. It’s tough for children in hospital over Easter and this helps take their mind off what they’re going through.”
