Swinton Bikes has given the young people who use Demelza hospice an early Christmas treat by arranging for Santa to visit the Sittingbourne hospice on a Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa.

The motorcycle insurance retailer decided to donate some of their budget towards a good cause this Christmas. The team from the bike unit based in Kent arrived at Demelza this week to donate a range of toys including a remote controlled Ducati 1098S.

Demelza Hospice Care for Children provides a range of hospice and care services to life-limited or life threatened children, and young people, and their families across Kent, East Sussex and South East London. They benefit from a wide range of facilities that include a multi-sensory room, Soft Play, Jacuzzi, and The Inclusion Zone (TIZ) for young people.

Anthony Aronin, Head of Swinton Bikes said, "The team thought it would be a really good idea to donate some of our budget to a good local cause this Christmas. Demelza Hospice is a brilliant facility for life-limited children and their families and we hope they enjoy the motorcycle themed toys that we have donated."

Natalie Tegg, Head of Corporate and Community Income Generation said: "We are delighted that Swinton Bikes has decided to support Demelza in this way. It will really bring some festive cheer to the children who use our services. A huge thanks to everyone involved."
