Members of the Trail Riders Fellowship raised more than £200 and collected over 40 gifts for the Christmas Child charity at a ride to commemorate the closure of the historic Long Causeway route by the Peak District National Park Authority.

The Trail Riders Fellowship marked the occasion by organising a teddy bears’ picnic at Stanage Pole, in which toys and cash were collected for the Christmas Child charity.

The gifts will be shipped to children who have nothing throughout the world as part of the charity’s famous ‘shoebox of gifts’ scheme.
