BIKERS revved their engines and raised hundreds of pounds for a children's hospital ward and hospice during their annual Easter egg run.

Around 70 bikers joined the Rawmarsh and District Motorcycle Club as they gathered at the Queen’s Hotel, Rawmarsh, at 10.30am on Easter Sunday for the annual pilgrimage to the children’s ward at Rotherham Hospital and Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

The club raised £400 for the hospital, where a giant Easter egg was delivered to the accident and emergency department, and £250 for the children’s hospice.

Bikers from Rawmarsh have been delivering Easter eggs and raising money for local charities every Easter since 1960.

Former president Keith Hopkins said he was pleased with the turnout and the amount raised.

“Some years we have had six bikers, so 70 is fantastic,” he said.

“I would like to thank everyone for turning out and making the day a great success.

“It was a great effort, too, for all those involved, especially the Queen’s Hotel landlord and staff, for keeping everyone topped up with hot drinks and biscuits.”
