There’s nothing scary about these bikers – who gathered from all over the North West to hand out hundreds of Easter treats to sick youngsters.

Bikers from the Setantii Motorcycle Club met at the Waterloo pub on Sunday before making their way in a convoy to Brian House children’s hospice to hand out chocolate Easter eggs.

Michelle Lonican, of the Brian House fundraising team, said: “There were so many bikers and they had come from all over the North West, and with the weather being lovely that made it even more special.

“It was probably the first time some of these bikes went out in the sunshine.

“The Setantii Bikers have strong links with Brian House and Trinity and do a lot of fundraising and raising awareness.

“They are going to come down again in a few weeks time for a visit. I have suggested they come round and we will give them a tour.

“They brought that many eggs it was absolutely amazing. There were mountains of them and the lovely thing about that is that the eggs will be distributed to the children that we care for, but also their siblings and the children we counsel for.

“The children who aren’t able to eat the eggs due to the complications of their illnesses will have their eggs melted down and they can smell and play with the chocolate so they get that sensory experience.”

Setantii MCC founder member Daz Busby said: “There was about 70 bikes there so there was quite a good turnout.

“We got more eggs than we wanted - we had hundreds. We did end up taking some to Beaverbrook House as well!”
