Around 430 motorbikes drove through Amble on Easter Saturday, as they took part in the Northumbria Easter egg run. Crowds watched as the bikers paraded down Queen street and along to the harbour, where they stopped for a break and to meet members of the public.

1000 easter eggs were collected and will be donated to children in North East hospitals including the RVI, Freeman and Sunderland hospitals, some specialist schools and hospices. The bikers also raised £1507.71 for the Northumbria Blood Bikes. Volunteers from the Northumbria Blood Bikes charity deliver blood and urgent medical supplies, out of hours, between hospitals and other healthcare sites in North East England.
