Hannam Vale Salvation Army toy ride

The 2017 Hannam Vale Salvation Army toy ride went exceptionally well, according to the organisers, Manning Valley Ulysses Club.

Riders assembled in Primrose and Isabella streets, Wingham on Sunday December 3 prior to the ride at 11am.

The Salvation Army collected enough Christmas gifts to fill a Tarargo van twice and businesses and individuals from the Manning and Great Lakes donated a total of 48 prizes for the raffle, starting in value at $20.

The ride route took in Taree, Lansdowne, Coopernook, Moorland and concluded at Hannam Vale with a barbecue operated by the Hannam Vale Salvation Army.

The Ulysses club will meet in the near future to learn the financial success of the ride but organisers are confident it will break previous records.
