Mitchell brings extra bit of Christmas cheer

Mitchell Sneddon has dipped into his own pocket to bring a bit of extra cheer to children on the Peninsula.

Three years ago last October, Mr Sneddon lost his best friend in a motorcycle accident in Woy Woy.

"He left behind three little girls who didn't care much about Christmas that year so I decided to dress up as Santa Claus and ride my bike to them with presents and it has grown from there," he said.

For the 2016 Christmas bike run, Mitchell was joined by friends Peter Tindale, Glen and Sandra Aquilina, Scooter Farrugia and Warren Parry.

"We started in Woy Woy as we do every year and we go down to Umina and across to Empire Bay," he said.

The bike run has expanded each year and now the group of friends dress up and hand out presents to hundreds of children from Woy Woy to the northern reaches of the Central Coast.

The group hands out gifts and lolly bags to children and children can get their photos taken with Santa and his helpers.

Central Coast Harley Davidson came to the party this year by donating a gift voucher and t-shirts.

Mr Sneddon said the Christmas bike run would always start in Woy Woy and said he hoped it would get bigger and better every year.
