Season of giving revs up with annual toy run

FORGET trees trimmed with tinsel, it's bikes topped with teddy bears that herald in Christmas in Griffith.

The annual toy run will add plenty of festive cheer as hundreds of bikes and hotrods make their way down the main street on Saturday, December 8.

Organiser Locky Miller has issued an invitation to all local motorcyclists to be part of the run, which collects toys and non-perishable goods for St Vincent De Paul and vital funds for Griffith Can Assist.

"Anyone who wants to come along, including L or P-platers, is quite welcome," he said.

"At this stage we know that our final destination is Lake Wyangan, where we will enjoy lunch provided by Can Assist. But, as for the ride, it's going to be a mystery run this year.

"All anyone knows is that it will be around 200 kilometres. I hope we can get good support because both charities are very worthy and need a hand."

Drivers and riders are being asked to gather at the plane at 8.30am ready to ride out at 9.30am.

Mr Miller said those who want to help the cause by donating money or new toys can do so at the car park before the ride takes off.

To be part of the ride you can simply sign up on the day by donating $10 to Can Assist.

New Can Assist volunteer Kayla Reginato is urging people to get behind the ride.

"It is an awesome event and a great opportunity for the public to help out and see the parade of bikes. It is a sight to see," she said.

"Today, nearly everyone has been touched by cancer, that's why it's so important to get behind this. It helps our community."
