The Military Brotherhood Military Motorcycle Club are putting their big hearts back in leathers for their sixth annual Christmas Toy Run, to be run in conjunction with St Vinnie’s.

The aim is to gather toys and goods for children and families in need in the Gympie and Sunshine Coast regions.

The Cooloola and Sunshine Coast chapter is now collecting good quality new and barely used toys and gifts before a mystery ride on Saturday 11 December, starting at 8am at the Gympie Gold Mining Museum on Brisbane Road.

There are several collection points, such as St Vincent De Paul Gympie in John St, the Mary Valley RSL, the Furniture and Bedding Department of Harvey Norman Gympie, the Bank of Queensland Gympie Branch and the Veteran’s Assistance Centre in the James Nash Arcade.

Rainbow Beach State School is also a collection point for this year’s toy run and donations can be dropped off at the school office during school hours.

This collection point was organised by RBSS student Keira.

She requests that donors make sure all toys, games or items are in good condition.

“Gift cards are also accepted. Gifts for 12-15 year-olds are usually low, so please consider this age group as well,” she said.

The deadline for gift donations is Friday 10 December.

All bikes and cars are welcome to join in the Toy Run, which promises to be a colourful and fun event.
