Bikers Rights of New Zealand (Bronz) Otago president Mary
Storey arrives in the Octagon with Santa Bear on the annual
Christmas toy run on Saturday.
More than 200 riders braved wet conditions to take part in
the 29th run. "It's such a fantastic turnout, with this rain.
I've done every one and this is only the second time we've
had rain," Ms Storey said.
The run started at the Carey's Bay Historic Hotel at 1.30pm,
with the riders then assembling outside the University of
Otago's School of Dentistry for the toy run into the Octagon.
The toys will be distributed to a range of charities by the
Dunedin North Lions Club. Bronz also donated funds from its
Vincent Country Rally in February, giving $4500 to the
Muscular Dystrophy Association of New Zealand southern branch
and $3500 to the Otago Rescue Helicopter Trust.
