Scooter Club in egg run to Royal Blind School
A convoy of scooters is set to ride to the Royal Blind School armed with Easter eggs this evening (Wed Mar 25).
The Edinburgh Scooter Club’s Easter Egg Run leaves from Dreghorn Services at 7pm to ride to the Royal Blind School in Morningside. Here they will be met with a warm welcome from all the residential school pupils as they deliver a supply of chocolate eggs.
Previous years have seen over 40 scooter enthusiasts take part in the annual ride to the school.
The Royal Blind School’s Care Services Manager, Julie Jamieson said:-
“The scooter club visit is always an exciting evening. The children and young people really look forward to hearing the dramatic roar of the scooters coming up the drive, laden with chocolate eggs!
“Everyone enjoys the chance to meet the scooter riders and examine the bikes up close. For our young people, a convoy of scooters is a much cooler egg delivery method than an Easter bunny!
“We are grateful to the scooter club for their continued support. The arrival of their chocolate convoy makes Easter that little bit more special for all the children and young people at the Royal Blind School.”
