The Norwich Scooter Collective travelled from Open Academy, in Heartsease, to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital on Sunday morning to deliver the eggs.

The Easter Egg Run - which was started by John Frary and is now run by Jez Kidd - is now in its 10th year, and this year saw roughly 300 kindhearted riders take part.

Earlier in the day, some of the team from Lind Motorrad BMW motorcycle dealership in Norwich also arrived on their bikes to drop off toys and gifts.

On Tuesday, personnel from RAF Marham will make their annual delivery of eggs, while on Wednesday Reed Global will continue the week of giving.
