To All Volunteer Toy Run Marshals

I just wanted to officially thank all 110 marshals who gave up their day to volunteer with the many various marshalling duties for the 27th Reading Toy Run event held on the 9th December.

It took me a lot of work to arrange the weather (neither rain nor snow) and people seemed happy with this. The day went well and all 1300 riders in the Toy Run cavalcade were marshalled safely along the 7 mile route without a hitch.

About 70% of the marshals come from TVAM and it is this support that provides a reliable back-bone for the marshal collective.

I wish to send a massive thank you to Lyn Allen, Yvonne & Steve Myers, the Heralds, the SERV bikers and all the (orange) TTMs.

Lastly to all volunteer marshals on the Toy Run, on behalf of myself, Ben & Jane Spiller, Sean Stillman, Barnardos High Close School and the several thousand grateful children who will have a better Christmas this year…

…thank you, have a great Xmas and a safe New Year.
