Number 1 – Every year Aycliffe Bike Club and The Party Fire Engine tour pubs collecting toys that have been donated, to be handed over to Women’s Refuges and family support agencies. This event has been running 14 years and handed over thousands of toys, giving kids a Xmas they could only have dreamt about, so please support this worthwhile cause.
If you can, buy an extra present this year and leave it, unwrapped at The Turbinia, or better still, hand it over in person and greet the cavalcade of motorcycles (many in fancy dress) and the Party Fire Engine at 4.00pm on Sunday 12th December.
All bikers are very welcome to join in the fun, suitable for all sizes of Bikes / Trikes / Scooters etc., just donate a toy.
Meet at the Turbinia, Newton Aycliffe DL5 7PA – 11.45am

Number 2 – Last year, because pubs were locked down, Martin had a crazy idea to do home collections, it was an amazing success, people got into the spirit of it, involving neighbours, etc, it was almost like a street party everywhere we went. Loads of toys donated, at a time when children’s support charities were struggling because of covid restrictions. It was great fun and people enjoyed it so much we were asked to do it again.
