Southport Cruisers raised £575 for Formby childrens home on Sunday
Southport Cruisers Motorcycle Club made their annual Christmas Run to Clumber Lodge Children’s Home in Formby on Sunday 11th December. Over 50 bikers took part in this fantastic run for the children from Southport to Formby and they managed to raise a whopping £575 for the children this Christmas.
The bikes met up at Leo's bar on Neville Street in Southport and rode around Southport and then make their way down the Formby bypass and into Formby, passing through the village and over Formby Bridge, down Woodlands/Harington Road and onto Victoria Road into Clumber Lodge.
A cash collection was taken on the day and the money collected was given to the Home to allow the staff to treat the Children to an Outing. Donations of sweets and chocolates were also handed over for the staff and children to enjoy over the Christmas Period.
The Southport Cruisers would like to say a special thanks to all the other clubs that took part including: BAT (Bikes and Trikes), Rockerbox and Daisy Chain and to everyone involved.

and then down Victoria Road...
The Chairman of the Southport Cruisers Derrick Moss, has been Involved with this event since the 1980’s and said “when the event began the bikers had a Police bike escort, the home cared for Physically and Mentally Handicapped Youngsters who were difficult to look after at home, the noise of the bikes arriving created excitement for all, these children who could not see or hear could feel the vibration and was great to get a reaction.
Today the excitement is the same, with the girls and boys ages ranging from 0 to 18 they have varied needs, it is warming to be able to do a little to bring some happiness to young people with difficult lives.
Motorcycle Clubs up and down the country will be actively helping those in need through the Christmas Period as well as raise money for good causes all year round.
This helps to bring down barriers and misconception’s and provides good social events benefiting everybody. Any Motorcyclist is welcome to join in on the day and also on the Easter run as well.
