Over the weekend of December 4-6 motorbike lovers across the South West are being asked to don their festive attire and take part in Santas on a Bike to raise vital funds for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) and its local children’s hospice, Little Bridge House.
Santas on a Bike is an annual festive fundraiser held across the region which sees three mass ride outs of Santas riding motorbikes and raising funds for, and visiting, their local children’s hospice.
Hundreds usually join the routes, which cover Cribb’s Causeway to the Charlton Farm children’s hospice in Wraxall; Taunton to the Little Bridge House children’s hospice in Fremington; and Ivybridge to the Little Harbour children’s hospice in St Austell, ending up with a celebration at the hospices.
Although the motorbikes won’t be able to visit the hospices this year due to Covid restrictions, riders are still keen to get out and raise as much money and awareness as they can for Little Bridge House, Charlton Farm and Little Harbour, which have continued to provide vital care and support to children with life-limiting conditions and their families through an extremely challenging year.
Organisers simply ask that Santas ride solo, plan a safe and enjoyable route adhering to all government guidelines, and not to visit their local hospice as they usually would but to simply add their donations online instead. Participants are encouraged to dress up in festive attire, decorate their bikes and encourage friends, family and colleagues to make a donation to CHSW.
