A Flintshire motorcycle club has launched a Christmas toy appeal for families struggling with the cost of living crisis at schools across Flintshire. 

Forgotten Riders Motorcycle Club are a group of motorcycle enthusiasts based in Holywell that have recently turned their hand to community work. 

On Tuesday, September 27, members Needles and Stax, headed down to a Glan Aber primary school in Bagilt to clean up after it was brought to their attention that equipment had been vandalised. 

The club has now decided to launch a Christmas Toy Appeal to help the families at the school and others in Flintshire struggling amid the cost of living crisis. 

A spokesperson from the group said via Facebook: "As some of you will have seen, Forgotten Riders MCC attended Ysgol Glan Aber, Bagillt in recent days to help repair some damage to the Primary school.


"While we were there it was brought to our attention that, due to the cost-of-living crisis, there will be some parents who will struggle this Christmas to give their children the Christmas they deserve.

"The worry felt by these parents and disappointment felt by the kids will detract from the happiness this time of year represents.


"We would like to help this school, parents and its children this Christmas and, if we are able, other schools as well.

"We want to collect as many toys, children's gifts or cash donations as we can, we would particularly like to hear from sporting, game and toy companies that would like to help us and hopefully together we can make a positive difference in someone's life this Christmas!

"Help us ensure the magic of Christmas enters the homes of these families!"

In just a few days of fundraising via word of mouth the club has raised over £100. 

Those wanting to help to find them at the New Boot&Ship in Bagilt on one of their scheduled Bike Nights or to send a message via Facebook
