The generous Rivington Barn Bikers travelled en masse from Rivington to Chorley to deliver gifts for the children and young people, which they had collected over the past few months.

Organiser Craig Hayward, said: “We started this last year on behalf of my son who spent time at Derian House a long time ago. I just wanted to give something back and do something to make the kids happy.

“This year we decided to do it again and we have had twice as many taking part. The biker community is amazing. You mention the word charity and they’re there. They made this possible.”
