A Letter of thanks from our Chairman.
What a fantastic day.
On Sunday, April 10, the Star Bikers staged the 33rd Annual Egg Run.
It turned out to be one of the best we have had in recent years.
The Star Bikers would like to pass on a few thanks.
To Staffordshire Police motorcyclists and car driver, and all our own volunteer marshalls.
They kept everyone moving and safe between the start at Britannia Stadium and end at the King’s Hall. Thank you to both of the aforementioned venues for their continued support in the staging of the event.
To the Lord Mayor of Stoke-on-Trent, Councillor Denver Tolley, who I know had a great time leading the run.
Special thanks must again go out to the local motorcycle shops for their generosity when donating prizes for our free draw which takes place inside King’s Hall. They were: Bassett’s, BS Bikes, DH Autos, Foley Motorcycles, K2, Norman & Birch, SHD Motorcycles and Websters.
Thanks to Andy’s Motorcycles who always donates the trophies for best bike award etc. (Done by Trent Trophies) and to Prima Distribution for supplying transport for thousands of Easter eggs that were donated.
Thank you once again to The Sentinel for your support in advertising the run in the lead up and coverage of the day itself.
Thanks to everybody who displayed our posters.
Another good point on the day apart from the number of bikes, scooters, quads, etc actually on the run, was the number of people who came to stand at the side of the road to give their support, many of whom handed over Easter eggs as the run went past.
I would just like to say how grateful we are to everybody who donated to the event, be it with time and effort, Easter eggs or cash donations.
It is all received with the utmost gratitude. We could not do it without you. Thanks.
We did have a face painter and a couple of street entertainers that volunteered to come on the day but failed to turn up.
So if anyone would like to help at the next run we would be very grateful. Contact us via the website www.stokebikeruns.co.uk
Just one last note. I know it might be a bit colder by then, but it would be fantastic if we could see each and every one of you for this year’s 34th toy run.
