Kind-hearted bikers donated £2,828.75 to help sick kids in Crosshouse after raising funds from their own homes under lockdown.

Ayrshire’s Hillbillies MCC raised the amazing amount for the youngsters in Crosshouse Hospital despite the coronavirus lockdown cancelling their annual Easter Egg charity runs.

The Mauchline-based club previously set up a crowdfunder page at the start of the pandemic, urging members, usual participants and residents to donate despite COVID-19 restrictions limiting motorcycling.

Members of the club across Ayrshire joined in revving their bikes from their homes in tribute to the NHS since they couldn’t set out on the run last year, with restrictions again cancelling the big run.

A spokesperson from Hillbillies MCC Ayrshire said: “Now that lockdown is lifted a few of us were able to drop in and present the cheque to Crosshouse.

“Thanks to everyone who helped raise such a fantastic amount. Respect to you all.

“Looking forward to seeing you all on the road. Stay safe.”
