Event Cancellation - Official Statement


UPDATE: 14/12/17

In the absence of being able to receive cash donations on the day, a Just Giving page has been set up.
You can find out more and donate here:

Many thanks for your ongoing support and a special thanks to all those who put in the time in preparation for this years event, those who worked hard to get so many gifts through to High Close School in such challenging weather conditions and especially the road crew who still had to go out and take care of the signage afterwards.

Poor weather conditions is always a risk, but this is the first time in 32 years we have had to cancel the Toy Run.
We plan to be organising next years as usual and you can expect to see the 2018 date announced here after the summer.


May you know the blessing of God this Christmas and we look forward to seeing you on the road soon.

Thank God for Bikers

Due to the bad weather, dangerous riding conditions and therefore safety reasons, the Toy Run this year has had to be CANCELLED. 
Unfortunately we cannot control the event - and everyone's safety comes first. We know that this will be a huge disappointment to many, but we want to do all we can to ensure that the gifts still get to the children. therefore;
  • High Close School, Wokingham (RG40 1TT) will be open from noon - 3pm to receive your gifts, if you can make your own way there, preferably by car. 
  • There will be vans at Amec Foster Wheelers from 12am today so that the presents still reach the children.
  • Smiths of Whitely Wood will be open tomorrow also to receive gifts. 

We are truly sorry. This does suck - but everyone's safety comes first. 
There will be other years which we will just have to make bigger and better. 
Thank you for your understanding, and thanks you to everyone that has been involved in the planning and preparation of this years event.
Thank God for Bikers, 
Jane and Ben Spiller x
