4000-strong toy run
More than 4000 riders are expected to converge on Barnardo’s High Close School in Wokingham on Sunday, each bearing a gift for the children there.
The Reading Toy Run it is organised by a teacher at the school and her husband with the Thames Valley branch of the Christian Motorcyclists’ Association.
The run started out with just 45 bikes involved 12 years ago. Last year it had grown to 2000. This year 4000 is the estimate.
Riders meet at 1.30pm at Foster Wheeler’s car park in Reading and leave at 2pm with police outriders. The convoy arrives at around 2.20pm.
High Close School in Wokingham is a residential special school for boys and girls with special educational needs.
