Toy Run gets ready to roar.

Celebrating its 24th year, the Tablelands Toy Run is back again for 2020. Each year bike owners from across the Tablelands help collect toys for the Salvation Army in Tolga on November 28.

The Toy Run will start with a breakfast from 7.30am at the Tinaroo Rural Fire Brigade at Tinaroo Falls Dam Road and then it will move onto the Yungaburra markets parking behind the CWA hall to collect more donations. The Toy Run will then proceed to Malanda Falls and then on through Atherton arriving at the Salvation Army in Tolga at approximately 11am.  

Event Coordinator of the Highland Motorcycle Restores club Don Sheppard said they are not just looking for Toys.

 “These days we are finding that there is also a demand for food from the Salvation Army,” he said.

“By all means, we are open to toys but there is a demand for tinned and non-perishable food especially coming up to Christmas.

“The main requirement is that the toys must be new and still in original packaging.”.

All toys and food will be donated to the Salvation Army in Tolga and there will be a Salvation Army van in the convoy allowing people to donate on the day.

Mr Sheppard also said the event is not just for bike owners. “We are hoping to get about 150 bikes and cars, any classic, muscle or retro cars are also welcome to join us on the Toy Run.” he said.

The Toy run is happening November 28 starting at the Tinaroo Rural Fire Brigade at Tinaroo Falls Dam Road.
