The North East Rhinos Motorcycle Club delivering an Easter egg

Members of Newcastle's North East Rhinos Motorcycle Club took to the roads on a special mission this Easter. They were helping pupils of Walbottle Campus distribute almost 400 Easter eggs they had bought for disabled and sick children in the area.

The fundraising effort was organised by one of the pupils, 16 year old Vanessa Middlemiss, whose father Jonathan is a member of the Rhinos.

This year was the club's tenth Easter egg run and Jonathan told the Evening Chronicle, "I know it means a lot to the youngsters and it has just spiralled each year."

The Alan Shearer Centre and the neighbouring Auton Children's Home were two of the many places to benefit and Centre regular John Robson was on hand to pass on our thanks to the pupils for their generosity.
