After smashing their Easter egg appeal target, scores of bikers delivered a selection of the chocolate treats to children at a disability charity.

The Bury St Edmunds and District Motorcycle Action Group joined forces with Asda for the appeal - managing to collect 500 to be distributed to a number of organisations.

On Sunday, they delivered the equivalent of a trolley load on their bikes for their annual Easter egg run to Scope, in Shakers Lane, Bury.

Andy Turner, who has been a member of the club for more than 20 years, said: “They (the children) loved it. There were big smiles - those that could a couple of them sat on the motorbikes and those that could were running around with crash helmets on.”

The run, which started from Moremoto, attracted about 40 to 50 people including riders from outside of Bury. They then collected the eggs from Asda and Michelle Frost, the supermaket’s community life champion, was able to ride on the back of a Harley. She said: “It’s fantastic - the amount of difference we’ve made from something as simple as an Easter egg.”

The rest of the eggs have been donatedto care homes, the women’s refuge, Riverwalk and Priory Schools as well as the Stepping Stones Dementia Cafe at Gatehouse. Meanwhile, a collection also raised £254 for Scope towards its work.
