A scooter convoy has donated £100 – and dozens of Easter eggs – to the Royal Blind School after their annual rally to the campus.

Pupil smiles near scooter Around 40 scooter enthusiasts took part in the ride from Dreghorn Services to the school. There they were met with a warm welcome from all the residential school pupils as they delivered a supply of chocolate eggs.

Pupils were invited to sit on the scooters, rev their engines and sound their horns.

The group were then invited for tea and cakes baked by the students.  

Roseanne Allison, Royal Blind Care Manager, said: “This is a tradition that has been going on for years now and the students absolutely love having the chance to get up close to the scooters.

“The guys are fantastic with the students and let them sit on the scooters and rev the engines which make a brilliant noise.

“Every student at the school received an Easter egg and the group very generously donated £100 to be used for toys and equipment for the students. I would like to thank them for such an entertaining evening."
