The Two Wheeled Photographer and #TeamPink met at Cromford to start their first-ever Easter motorcycle run to The Royal on Sunday, April 17.

Around 23 bikers and pillions turned up for the event in aid of The Den, which houses all the children’s services offered by the Chesterfield Royal Hospital Foundation Trust.

The Easter egg run saw riders make their way through the Peak District visiting locations such as Matlock Bath, Darley Dale, Bakewell, and Ashford in the Water, before dropping off donations in Calow, Chesterfield.

Speaking afterwards, a spokesperson for The Two Wheeled Photographer and #TeamPink said: “Due to Covid restrictions, the children were unable to join us outside but one little girl who was on her way home joined the staff and her mum to collect the cash donation raised of £260, over 50 Easter eggs, bags of sweets, and helium balloons.
