SALFORD SANTA RIDERS TAKE PRESENTS TO KIDS AT THE CHRISTIE
 

Star date: 29th November 2015

SANTAS ON BIKES AND IN CLASSIC CARS ROAR TO THE CHRISTIE

Hundreds of Santas on bikes, trikes, scooters and in classic cars braved the weather this afternoon, setting off from the Henry Boddington pub and roaring through the streets of Salford, led by a giant sleigh, to take presents to kids at The Christie.

"To see so many Santas bringing presents brings a big smile to their faces, and that's what we're here to do" said Beaver of the Vesperados Scooter Club which organised the run.

Despite the rain and gale force winds, hundreds of Greater Manchester Santas (plus a Rudolph, a Grinch, a Where's Wally?, a snow-woman, some elves and an Elmo) took off from the Henry Boddington pub on bikes, trikes, scooters and in classic cars, all decked out in Christmas tinsel and lights, to take presents to children at The Christie this afternoon.

Joining them were, bikers from Liverpool, Bristol and North Wales, plus cars from the Skoda Club, led by a giant sleigh full of presents complete with waving Santa.

"The weather hasn't disheartened us because we're doing it for Christie's" said Steven `Beaver' Brown from the Vesperados Scooter Club which organises the annual Santa Ride.

"We've got the Santa sleigh here again with a lot of presents in it for sick children" he added "At this time of year these children are away from their parents, away from, Santa, so to see so many Santas bringing them presents brings a big smile to their faces, and that's what we're here to do."

From the Henry Bod pub, the ride continued to Langworthy Road and then down Trafford Road heading to The Christie in Withington. It was another magical afternoon as lots of Salford people came out to cheer the riders on, while drivers beeped their horns in appreciation.
