On Easter Sunday, there was a distinct thunder in the air as men, women and children from across Aberdeenshire gathered, with motorcycles, at Fraserburgh beach.

They had gathered to form a procession which visited six different children’s residential homes throughout the area - two in Fraserburgh and Peterhead, and one in King Edward and Inverurie, respectively.

These bikers, who are all members of the Facebook group North East Custom Bike Scene, collected donations from family, friends and work colleagues as well as digging deep in to their own pockets to deliver Easter eggs to every child who resides at the homes.

On top of the eggs, four of the homes accepted cash donations of £590 each that will be used toward providing activities for the residents.

Each child also each received a t-shirt from last year’s Broch bike show which is organised and run by members of North East Scotland Custom Bike Scene.

This years show will be on August 16 at the Fraserburgh Leisure Centre, with all profits going to Isla’s Dream.

A further cash donation of around £500 was given to Teen Challenge Benaiah’s mother and children residential supported accommodation. The donation will be used to buy play equipment for children.

This was the second Easter egg run that has been organised by North East Custom Bike Scene and there was also a Christmas run last year. The organisers of the event were Alan Minty and Gordon Cruden.
