Ulysses touts toy odyssey
GLADSTONE Ulysses Club president Clyde Luck is hoping for about 200 motorcycles and trikes to take part in this year's annual Christmas toy run.
Club members and friends will gather at the Tondoon Botanic Gardens at 9.30am on December 3 before heading off on their long convoy around Gladstone, collecting toys all along the way.
Proceeds from the run will be given to the Salvation Army, and a Salvos van will follow the convoy collecting toys and cash donations along the route.
Mr Luck said the toy run would take the bikers through almost every street in the city, and
people were encouraged to wait on their footpaths when they heard motorcycles approaching.
"We would welcome toys or food items that we can put into hampers, but please make sure the foodstuffs are not perishable," he said.
The toy run is an annual event for the Ulysses Club, but last year it had to be cancelled because of bad weather, said Mr Luck. For more details call Mr Luck on 4975 7871.
