They might look scary at first glance, but this cohort of bikers come bearing goodwill and a large donation of toys.

The annual bike ride saw about 50 petrol-heads take to the streets around the borough on Sunday to bring gifts for children as part of the Recorder’s Christmas Toy Appeal.

Community Links boss Kevin Jenkins said: “They are regular fanatics who have been doing it for years but every year they still get together to give toys for the children at Christmas time.

“It’s become something of a festive tradition. Not only are they helping the borough’s deprived youngsters but they’re also doing their bit to spread a bit of seasonal cheer.”

As well as toys, the bikers also helped raise £100.
