A group of motorcyclists will be riding from Romford to Canning Town in aid of a toy appeal.

Organiser John Pryke said that the bikers will do the run for the Kevin Jenkins OBE Newham Christmas Toy Appeal on Saturday, December 10.

The ride will start at Triumph East London's headquarters in London Road and will see the group tour Essex and east London collecting toys for the appeal, run by charity Ambition, Aspire, Achieve (AAA) in partnership with the Newham Recorder.

The trip will end at AAA's Terence Brown Arc in The Park base in Canning Town.

It is an annual event for the appeal and is being staged with help from the Riders Who Want To Make A Difference group.

John said: “We are really looking forward to another great day. The appeal is so important to young people in Newham and we have been happy to lend our support for many years now.

"We always get a great welcome wherever we are on the journeys and the appeal sums up how the community cares for one another."
