The annual Marc Kingston Memorial Toy Run saw lots of toys being donated on Saturday morning in Cressy St, Deniliquin.

Collected by Deniliquin Ulysses Club members, the toys will be donated to the Deniliquin Salvation Army and handed out to children in need this Christmas.

Club members collected two ute trays full of gifts and had 30 of their motorbikes on display.

The Deniliquin Salvation Army Band also performed for CBD-goers.

Organiser Peter Nisbet said ‘‘everything went smoothly’’.

‘‘We had about 25 club members there who took the toys to the Salvation Army that day,’’ he said.

‘‘We are happy with the donations and would like to thank the community for its support.’’

The local initiative has been helping less fortunate children have a special Christmas since the 1980s.
