The 3 Amigos Motorcycle Group and Dollies are appealing for donations and toys for their charity toy run this December.

A much-loved event which sees hundreds of motorcyclists collecting and delivering toys, the toy run this year will take place on Saturday, December 9.

The toy run supports children’s services within Hywel Dda University Health Board and the Wish Fund, a campaign which helps the Hywel Dda paediatric palliative care service to create lasting memories for children, young people and families. The run also supports Action for Children.

The 3 Amigos will be travelling around various locations across Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire collecting for their appeal on the lead up to the run.

Collections will take place at Fishguard on November 16; Home Bargains, Milford Haven on November 18 and Castle Square, Haverfordwest on November 25. 

A spokesperson for the motorcycle group said:

“All of us have family or know someone whose children have needed care and treatment at Cilgerran Ward [at Glangwili Hospital]. We know the money donated goes towards helping make patients and families on the ward have a better experience.

“It's such a good feeling seeing how much joy the toy run brings to all the people who come out to support us. Helping Santa visit and handing out presents to the children in hospital at Christmas will create such a worthwhile feeling. 

“Last year, we raised an outstanding £10,000. We always aim to raise as much as we are able to.”

Fundraising officer Katie Hancock said:

“Once again the 3 Amigos Motorcycle Group and Dollies are going above and beyond to support children’s services in Hywel Dda University Health Board.

“Their famous toy run is always a huge success and brings Christmas cheer to many children supported across the Hywel Dda region. We can’t thank them enough for their time, effort and dedication to fundraising. If you can, please support the 3 Amigos and Dollies this Christmas.”
