Scunny Bikers deliver Easter cheer at the hospital with their largest egg ride yet

Scunny Bikers have helped the Easter Bunny out by delivering a bumper load of treats to children at Scunthorpe General Hospital.

Dozens of motorbikes took part in the club's largest ever egg run for children on the hospital's Disney ward.

Despite the sweltering heat, they got on their biking leathers - or in some cases Easter-themed outfits - and collected dozens of Easter eggs, toys and sweets that had been donated to local supermarkets.

More bikers than ever before showed their support, with around 135 bikes of all shapes and sizes taking part.

The impressive convoy set off from the Old Farm House pub at 10am before roaring into Scunthorpe General Hospital's car park at 1pm, to the delight of many children watching from the windows.

A member of the Scunny Bikers Josh Humphries said: "Collectively as a group we love being able to support the Disney ward with these events. It is wonderful to think we can help bring a smile to a child on the ward."

Scunny Bikers have made donations to the hospital every Easter and Christmas for the last 13 years.

They called in at Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons where people had generously donated eggs to be collected.

Sean Hayton, one of several Easter Bunnies in the convoy, said: "It was very warm riding around in that costume but well worth it! My wife also did very well wearing a sheep outfit.

"I've taken part in these rides ever since I joined Scunny Bikers, and never miss an opportunity. It really adds a great smile to children's faces.

"All being well, I'm sure I will be dressed up as Santa for our Christmas ride."

Once the eggs and sweets arrived at the hospital, they were quickly taken inside before they melted for children to enjoy. The generous donations can help distract children who have to spent their Easter holidays in the hospital.

Disney ward manager Viki Mcalpine said: “We are truly grateful to Scunny Bikers for organising their fantastic annual Easter egg run. The children’s faces light up when they see all of the fantastic goodies. I would like to say a big thank you all the local supermarkets and the community who supports this event year after year.”

The weather was far kinder than last year, when the bikers endured heavy rainfall throughout the ride.
