Easter Sunday saw the annual spectacle that is the Moorlanders’ Easter Egg Run, drawing hundreds of motorbikes from across Cornwall and Devon. Held in association with Widows Sons Kernow, the Egg Run unites bikers to raise money for local children’s charities.
Moorlanders Motorcycle Club worked with Trethorne Leisure Park this year to organise a day of family fun for young carers and families in crisis that are supported by Action for Children Cornwall. “We had an outstanding response from the families,” said Graham Holtum, Moorlanders’ Chairman, “57 parents and children spent the day at Trethorne and came out to meet us as we made our half-way stop to deliver chocolate eggs to them.”
Action for Children is one of the charities that will receive part of the £3,000 raised on the day by the Egg Run. The others are Little Harbour (CHSW), the ARB special needs units of Camelford and St Stephens, Launceston primary school and Bowden Derra care home.
The Egg Run finished at Bowden Derra care home, with a lively event that grows year on year with a bar-b-que, stalls, awards for the bikers and live music by local band, Strange Brood.
