Hundreds of bikers dressed as Santa will be heading to a children’s charity in Wraxall on December 2.

The motorbikes will be leaving Cribbs Causeway in Bristol, before making their way through the city and arriving at Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

The event has been held for more than 10 years and motorcyclists are being invited to take part.

Kylie Gallagher, community fundraiser at CHSW, said: “This really is a highlight in our Christmas calendar.

“The children and parents love to see the hundreds of motorbikes riding into the hospice and spreading so much festive cheer.

“Christmas is a very poignant time for our families and we are very grateful to Oli and everyone involved with Santas on a Bike for their fundraising and for making some very special joyful memories our families can treasure.”
