Children on the Rainbow Ward, at the West Suffolk Hospital, in Bury St Edmunds, had an early Christmas present following a toy run by up to 20 motorcyclists.
They had set out from the Little Chef at Barton Mills on the Fiveways roundabout a noon, on Saturday, with some in fancy dress as Father Christmas, a reindeer, a snowman and elves.
The bikers had come armed with presents and from all over the region including those from as far away as St Ives, in Cambridge, and more locally from Thetford, Bury St Edmunds, Beck Row and Mildenhall.
It was the 14th year of the toy ride and organiser Barbara Craig said: “It was a good run and we want to say a thank you to all who braved the cold and who donated pressies. And thanks also to 363 Littleport Bike Club who helped with the road marshalling and everyone who dressed up to make it that more magical and fun.
“The children on the ward were happy to see us and enjoyed what we brought.”
