HUNDREDS of bikers dressed as Father Christmas and in various Star Wars costumed revved up in Ascot on Sunday to deliver gifts.

Now in its eighth year, the Annual Windsor Toy Run is held on the last Sunday of every month.

Unafraid to shed their tough-man and woman personas, the leather clad throttle enthusiasts swapped the leather for an array of festive costumes and met at 11am at Ascot Racecourse.

From there they rode through Windsor to the Broom Farm Estate in Dedworth to deliver gifts to the Army Welfare Service, which will pass on the presents to the armed forces serving abroad.

Sammy Duffill, a Windsor resident, wrote on Facebook: "What a great afternoon.

"My little boy absolutely loved waving to all the bikers arriving onto our estate and then getting to sit on a couple of amazing bikes! Everyone was in great spirits and it was a lovely afternoon.

"Thank you all for your efforts and for the donated toys for our military children."

It is estimated 300 motorcycles raced through the course, many decked out with holly and Christmas lights.

Money was collected on the day for The Stroke Association.
