This was the scene in February, 1980, when Downham Motorcycle Club members presented gifts to the Toy Library at Lynn.

Alan Gates, left, the club chairman, is pictured passing the gifts to six-year-old Edward Whitehead and his dad Tony. Mr Gates said: “The name of motorcyclists is usually associated with long hair and hanging about street corners, but we want to show we are just normal people.” The library, which opened in 1975, relied solely on donations to maintain its stocks of toys which can then be enjoyed by handicapped children in the Lynn area.
