Creative youngsters in Sheffield have made a cracking start to their Easter as the region gears up for a full weekend of events.

Aston Lodge and Aughton Primary school pupils designed Easter eggs to raise cash so they could visit the Co-operative farm in Goole – where youngsters learn where food comes from in the ‘farm to fork’ initiative.

Top entries also scooped chocolate treats from the Aston Co-operative.

On Sunday former World Superbike champion James Toseland is leading big-hearted bikers on an Easter pilgrimage across Sheffield to raise cash for The Children’s Hospital charity.

The Doncaster-born rider, engaged to singer Katie Melua, will hand out eggs to young patients in the children’s hospital.

Bikers can take part in the ride, organised by the Three Shires Honda Owners Club, by meeting at South Yorkshire Police Operations Complex on Europa Link from 8.30am on Sunday. Entry is £2.

Fundraiser Simon Athey said: “It’s a great opportunity to meet a world champion biker and raise money for our hospital.”

The Sheffield branch of the British Motorcycle Preservation Society is also revving up to help others on Sunday.

Society members will ride classic machines to deliver cash and eggs for Chancet Wood, Rushey Meadows and Ryegate respite homes.
