Frequently asked questions

Who is eligible to ride?


Anyone who has a license to ride a motorcycle is eligble to ride in the Newcastle Toy Run.




What kind of bike can I ride?


Any road registered motorcycle can be ridden in the Toy Run.




Who benefits from the donations?


Disadvantaged children and families in the Hunter region will benefit from 100% of donations collected. Our 2017 beneficiary is The Salvation Army Christmas Appeal.




Can I throw lollies to the kids while riding?


No. It's illegal to throw anything from a moving vehicle. It also poses a risk to children who may get hit with flying objects, or even become distracted and run into the path of an oncoming motorbike.




Can I wrap my toys?


No, we can't accept toys that are wrapped. All toys go through a sorting process before they are given to children and families, toys that are wrapped make this process very hard. Please click here for more information.




What toy should I give?


While we accept all toys, it's important to remember that we cater to the age of 0 up to 17. Often teenage children get forgotten about, so things like gift cards are very much appreciated and suitable if you don't know what to get.

Is it mandatory to register?


No, but this helps us manage the event. It also puts you in the running to win some pretty cool prizes and get acess to exclusive rider-only merchandise.




Can I donate toys prior to the ride?


Yes. Toys can be dropped off prior to the Toy Run at various locations around Newcastle. Watch this space!




Can I become an event volunteer?


Sure! We'd love your assistance. Please complete this form here: https://form.jotform.co/newcastle-events/volunteer-toy-run
