More than 150 motorcyclists took to the road on Saturday, collecting toys for needy families along the way.
The annual toy run, held by the Ulysses Club in support of the Salvation Army Toy Appeal started at Woodbourne Tavern in Renwick and travelled to Blenheim.
Blenheim Salvation Army corps core officer Julie Marshall said it had been another successful year.
"Every year it just seems to be absolutely huge and the generosity is amazing. The quality of the toys is consistently high and it makes all the difference when it comes to putting the parcels together," she said.
Roughly 170 toy parcels would be shared between about 64 families, Salvation Army toy run co-ordinator Joyce Somerville said.
Ulysses toy run co-ordinator Megan Trilford said people could still donate toys by dropping them into the Salvation Army on George St in Blenheim between 9am and noon, or at the Family Store on Scott St during business hours.
