Sunday, 8 December 2013, local motor bike club, the Original
Cruisers kept the resolution of taking their annual Christmas
Toy Run to Nazareth House in Crosby, which is a short stay
respite home, run by Sefton MBC, for children with physical and
learning difficulties. Our editor Patrick headed to St Teresa's
Social Club and Birkdale Community Centre, to capture the set
off, and we have since received a message from Charlie, the
Chairman of The Original Cruisers, who said:- “The
Original Cruisers have been doing these toy runs for a number of
years now, but unfortunately it has had to be our last one today
to this particular children’s home (Nazareth House) as it is
closing down, So this time we specially wanted to make it one
for them to remember, which we can safely say we did, going by
the smiles on their faces when they saw all the motorbikes with
the riders dressed as Father Christmas, Mrs Christmas and
reindeer; and even a Sponge Bob Squarepants turned up it just
made their day! Because that's what it’s all about. Some of the
children even got to sit on some of the motorbikes. It’s just
such a shame that Nazareth House has close its doors. I myself,
as Club Chairman, would like to thank all the Original Cruisers
and visiting Motorbike Clubs for making today a truly special
one, and it was a huge success, we had around 50 vehicles on the
parade to Nazareth House.” Please enjoy our
