Spring is here, time for an Egg Run!

When the warm weather finally starts to break, and the clouds and rain is replaced by the sun and green leaves, motorbikes start emerging from their winter hibernation, and start to take to the roads again. For the Northumberland chapter of the Widows Sons, the start of our year is always our successful Easter Egg run to local children’s schools and disabled centres. For a lot of our members this is one of the highlights of the year, and a very enjoyable day fur us all, and the children we visit.  The simple £5 donation we ask for each year to buy eggs has such a huge effect, and the welcome we receive as we ride into the schools and centres across the region is absolutely amazing.

The Percy Hedley School we visit is predominantly for children with partial or total hearing loss, the Easter eggs are the excuse to turn up, but for the children the real excitement for them is the opportunity to sit on the bikes, whilst we start the engines. Being deaf, the vibration from the bikes give them a real sensation of what the bikes sound like, and a lot of the children  really light up, once they sit on the bikes and the “start” button is pressed. 

The Wellford Centre in Gosforth is for teenage children and adults with a broad range of learning and physical disabilities. A large number of the attendee’s at this centre have been wheel chair bound since birth. With the assistance of the carers, members of the Widows  Sons lift the students out of the wheel chairs and sit them on the bikes, the effect is amazing.
