Armed with goodwill and toys from RCH, Zsuzsanna and her fellow bikers embarked on a heart-warming journey to deliver presents and contribute funds to the Maternity/Children’s ward at QEQM Hospital in Margate.
The event took place in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Whitstable Toy Run Association. Over 100 bikers, undeterred by the cold, wet, and windy weather, gathered to make a meaningful impact on the lives of children at the Rainbow’s Children’s Ward.
The Whitstable Toy Run is more than just a gathering of bikers—it’s a heart-warming movement aimed at supporting disadvantaged children during tough times in their lives with a mission of organising two impactful runs, one at Christmas and an Egg Run at Easter, complemented by a series of events throughout the year.
It’s a collective effort to bring joy and relief to those facing adversity.
The team at Nursing and Residential Dementia Home in Ashford, were really proud of Zsuzsanna’s efforts and participation bike ride and wanted to support this worthy cause. On behalf of the home, RCH’s Director of Care and Quality Angela Gibson donated over £100 worth of teddies to be added to the donations already collected by the team.
When the friendly bikers arrived at the hospital, Chairman Sylvis Phelis, committee members, and hospital volunteers extended a warm welcome to them and expressed their gratitude with hot drinks and mince pies for their selfless efforts.
The dedication of these bikers is a testament to the power of community, compassion, and the true spirit of the season. Zsuzsanna is looking forward to the next ‘Whitstable Toy Run’ which is being held on Sunday the 17th March. Despite the challenging weather conditions, Zsuzsanna shared that every minute spent on this noble mission was worth it. The dedication of these bikers is a testament to the power of community, compassion, and the true spirit of the season.
