WHO CARES, WINS.
Remember when the TOY RUN in Melbourne was big?
Remember when people lined the route and cheered the riders?
Remember when we filled semi-trailers with gifts for kids who wouldn't have had much of a Christmas otherwise?
We're doing it again. This time for the Father Bob Foundation.
Assemble from 10 am on Sunday, December 8, 2013, in Alexandra Avenue near the Swan Street Bridge.
We want cash. Father Bob's volunteers will have receipt books on the day. $2 is a feed for someone. And packaged food, preferably Australian. A can of beans is someone's Christmas dinner. And clothes, blankets and new toys. It makes you feel good to give.
It also makes you feel good to know that this is great PR for motorcycle & scooter riders which leads to a fair go on the road and a fair go in the corridors of power.
And, it's fun. Decorated bikes, costumes and club flags and banners welcome.
Non-riders can meet us at Father Bob's in Victoria Avenue, Albert Park. There's plenty of good places for lunch and the beach is at the end of the street so bring the kids to see the bikes.
Watch this blog for more details.
Feel free to pass this on. Put it on websites and anywhere it will be seen.
