Raising money for local children’s charities since 1997.
2020 has presented us with the unique challenge of Coronavirus COVID-9, and for the safety of the riders and mashalls, we had to postpone this year’s Egg Run – It’ll be a shock to many not to have an Egg Run on Easter Sunday in Cornwall – but the impact will also be felt by our five charities.
Over its 23 year history our Egg Run has delivered hundreds of chocolate Easter Eggs to care facilities and raised, in total, over £45,500 for local charities, and we don’t want to stop. Please donate now what you would’ve spent on Easter Eggs and raffle tickets so that we are able to provide support in an exceptional year as our charities respond to COVID-19.
Donate £5 or more, and we’ll post a 2020 Egg Run keyring to you. Just email your name (as it appears in your donation) and address to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
The history of the Egg Run in Cornwall dates back to 1997, when a trio of bikers had the good idea of organising a ride on Easter Sunday, collecting donations to local children’s charities and taking chocolate eggs to them. The run proved popular, and became an annual event. In 2001 the Moorlanders took up the responsibility of holding the Egg Run.
We’re proud of the £45,500 that the Egg Run has collected over the years, and that this year we’ve raised £5,400 to for our chosen charities – Action for Children, Children’s Hospice South West, and the ARB Learning Support Units at Camelford & Launceston primary school.
Over 600 motorcycles, and hundreds more people joined us on Davidstow Airfield Runway on Easter Sunday for this year’s Egg Run. It may have been the hottest Easter, but the 250 donated chocolate eggs were kept safe, and the only thing that melted were the hearts of those that witnessed the size of the Run and the loving nature of those who helped raise over £5,000 for children in care.
Bikers donated chocolate eggs which have now been delivered to children in care across the Duchy. Once we’ve finish collecting all monies promised, we’ll be visiting the charities for cheque presentations.
Praised for being well organised and properly marshalled, the Egg Run left the Airfield at 11.10am for the annual spectacle through Camelford fore street. It then lead down to Wadebridge, over to Victoria for a fuel and comfort stop, before winding over the Moor and up to Bowden Derra Park.
The end event at Bowden Derra was well attended by residents and people from the village of Polyphant, with stalls and a raffle helping contribute just under £700 of the total raised.
The WSSW Moorlanders would like to thank all supporters of the Egg Run – from those that came out to wave, the bikers taking part, to the many corporate sponsors and Bowden Derra Park.
