Motorcyclists kick-start Salvation Army and BBC Norfolk’s Christmas appeal

Scores of motorcyclists took to the roads of Norwich yesterday to help launch the Salvation Army's annual Toys and Tins appeal.

The annual campaign, which is a joint venture between the charity and BBC Radio Norfolk, aims to distribute gifts of food and toys to families in difficult circumstances across the county at Christmas.

To launch the appeal, about 100 motorcyclists rode in convoy from Stalham to Norwich, stopping to collect donations at the Roys of Wroxham, Tesco in Sprowston and the St Edwards Street car park on the way.

They launched the appeal outside the Forum.
