Thank You For Your Support

Once again thank you all for your enthusiastic and generous support of the Reading Toy Run on this it's 30th Anniversary. Everyone's contributions are deeply appreciated, helped make the occasion run smoothly and benefitted children and the work of children's support services across the area and beyond.

In total we had 2041 participants in the run itself, thats 1565 riders with 476 pillions! It required 144 marshals, (big thanks to chief Marshal, Gary), a cast of dozens of others behind the scenes  and thousands of locals lined the streets to cheer everyone on.

At Barnardo's High Close School, gifts were received by staff and volunteers, principle Zoe Latimer expressed her thanks and explained how the gifts will be distributed and used. The Mayor of Wokingham extended a welcome to all and many participants went home with gifts themselves as a thank you from numerous motorcycle retailers who sponsor the event.

The Road Crew - a brilliant team, led by Denis,
who take care of so much of the logistics to keep the run and public safe.

A Big Thank You From The Organisers!
Here's a few news snippets from the local media.
