Probably something like this charitable cohort of bikers who delivered up to 200 toys to the Recorder’s Christmas Toy Appeal, in partnership with Community Links.

The motley crew of about 40 philanthropists rode for some 15 miles from High Beach in Epping Forest, Essex, as part of their annual donation to the cause. One biker joined in after coming all the way from Norfolk, Norwich.

Community Links founder Kevin Jenkins said the group had been making the same journey, laden with gifts, for the last 25 years. “It’s a very important part of the appeal,” he added
