Harley Owners Group South West Chapter leads 2018's Toy Run event

The Harley Owners Group South West Chapter and Salvation Army have combined forces to lend a helping hand to the community. 

Taking part in the annual Toy Run on Saturday, December 1, riders left Treendale Shopping Centre at 11am before cruising through Australind and Leschenault. 

The contingent then made its way past Koombana Bay and the Back Beach, all while collecting toys to donate to the Salvation Army. 

They finished the ride at the Salvation Army Bunbury Corp’s premises on Timperley Road.

Along with donating the toys, the group enjoyed the sausage sizzle and listened to the Salvos’ brass band. 

Bunnings’s Bunbury and Australind outlets pitched in to help the group collect toys. 

Director Wayne “Jacko” Jackson said the Harley Owners Group was honoured to lead the ride once again. 

“It’s good to see everyone coming out and making the effort,” he said.

“Every tour around the state is fantastic. The riders all come out to support them, and they’re all for a worthwhile cause.” 

Salvation Army captain Jason Dannock agreed, saying: “Each rider has been able to contribute to what we do to help the community, it’s great.” 

“There are a lot of families that struggle at Christmas time.

“Without the toys and other donations, we wouldn’t be able to help them in the way that we can at the moment.”
