Scores of Newham bikers burnt rubber to deliver chocolate Easter eggs to needy children for Easter Sunday this week.
An “egg-straordinary” 517 Easter eggs were provided to disadvantaged children by the leather-clad philanthropists for the
Bikers Easter Egg Run on April 12.
The annual event organised by local charity Community Links saw more than 70 bikers put their pedals to the metal to help children who would otherwise go without eggs this Easter.
One easy-rider named Chris Ward earned himself a special mention by delivering 110 Easter eggs.
