ON Sunday, 27 November, Amanzimtoti residents supported the 17th annual Durban National Motorcycle Toy Run.

The event saw thousands of riders revving their engines and travelling from the Pavilion to the Amanzimtoti Sports Centre all for a good cause, to collect toys for disadvantaged children.

A new toy donation gave the public entry to the event at the Amanzimtoti Sports Centre with entertainment for adults and children and market stall holders.

Sapphire Coast Tourism’s Monique Botha said Sapphire Coast Tourism was happy to host the annual event.

“It was again a great success. We are pleased to see the bikers come to town. We hope everybody enjoyed themselves and will return next year to an even bigger and better toy run,” she said.

Botha added that the event benefitted accommodation, restaurants, pubs, shopping outlets and all local businesses.

South Africans can pride themselves in knowing that their country holds the world record and has broken the Guinness Book of Records for the largest amount of motorcycles in one place, and the biggest charity toy run in the world.
