Since 1997, an Egg Run has been held on Easter Sunday in Cornwall, and raised in total over £47,000 for local children’s charities.
Starting at Davidstow Airfield, motorcyclists gather to donate £5 per bike and chocolate eggs for children in care, and then start on a pre-planned and fully marshalled motorbike run around North Cornwall.
The Egg Run ends at Bowden Derra care home, with live music, bar-b-que, stalls and a raffle.
Our charities include Children’s Hospice South West, who we have been supporting since conception of Little Harbour, their purpose built facility in St Austell, Cornwall that provides respite and end of life care to children with life limiting diagnosis. Most years we have donated £1,000 to Little Harbour per year.
The WSSW Moorlanders Egg Run also raises money for Action for Children and the learning support units (ARBs) of Camelford and St Stephens Launceston primary schools.
Action for Children is a national charity with a division in Cornwall. The Egg Run donates to a local fund used for amenities and adventure trips for Young Carers, children who act as carers for their parent.
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.
