They came in all shapes and sizes – Big Santas, little Santas, girlie Santas, stuffed Santas  - to play a crucial part in the annual Xmas Toy run to East Shore special needs school in Portsmouth organised by MAG (Motorcycle Action Group) member Dave Gibson . Dave also maintains  www.madaxeman.co.uk - the centre 16 Solent site for the VSOC (Virago Star Owners Club) and does sterling work producing leaflets and flyers to promote South Hants MAG fundraisers

Mike ‘I sleep with polar bears’ Fennemore ensured that plenty of New Forest HOG members were amongst the 93 bikes of all denominations that convened at the Churchillian pub overlooking Portsmouth on gloriously sunny December day for a 50 minute parade ride up through the town centre then along the sea front towards Eastern Road school location.

Lots of presents for the children were laid under the Xmas tree by those present whilst enjoying a hot coffee and mince pie courtesy of staff and friends of the school and including a £100 cheque from the ‘Road Warriors MC’ in Portsmouth a stonking £394 pounds was also raised from donations and presented by the local MAG rep to Paul Clarke the schools headmaster

The Easter egg run in 2006 will be the last event culminating in the schools current location before a move to new premises so the organisers are  hoping to mark the occasion by ‘breaking the ton’ and getting over 100 bikes to support the event and thereby hopefully procure an ‘official’ police escort for subsequent fund raisers . Watch this space for advance notice once a date is set ……….
