Ancestors Motorcycle Club Revs Up to Ulster Hospital for Annual Toy Run

28th November 2023

The Ancestors Motorcycle Club roared into the Ulster Hospital yesterday for their Annual Christmas Toy Run, bringing joy and festive spirit!

The event, now in its 30th year, saw the members of the Club don their leather jackets and helmets as they arrived at the Ulster Hospital with a convoy of motorcycles loaded with toys along with a very generous donation of £1300 which will be used to provide play materials and other resources for the children and young people in the Ulster Hospital Children’s Unit.

The Toy Run is a testament to the club’s commitment to community service and creating positive experiences for those in need, especially during the holiday season.

Throughout the past few weeks, the Ancestors Motorcycle Club had been collecting toys and donations from generous community members and businesses.  The bikers, accompanied by their unmistakable rumble of their engines, delivered the gifts to the hospital staff, spreading smiles and holiday cheer.

Interim Lead Nurse for Acute Paediatrics, Karen Orr was delighted to greet the club and receive the donations.  She said, “We are thrilled to host the Toy Run each year, it helps to ‘kick off’ the Christmas season!

“On behalf of the children, families and staff,  I would like to say a great big ‘thank you’ to the club for all their kindness and generosity and to everyone who contributed towards the donation and to the Toy Run.”
