Angels (and a few devils) on bikes spread Christmas joy

ANOTHER miracle of the loaves and fishes would have been welcome at the Jetty Foreshores today.

As more and more bikers arrived at the end of the 19th annual Salvation Army toy run, organisers who had planned a sausage sizzle for around 300 were caught unprepared.

Almost double that number rode in for what's probably been the biggest ever charity gathering of its kind to be presented by the Mid North Chapter of the Harley Owner's Group.

Bikers and passengers left North Beach Bowling Club at noon, accompanied by supporters in cars, loaded to the gunwales with toys and tinned food.

Further donations including cash would be welcomed by the Salvos to assist the less fortunate at Christmas.
