In a statement the organisers Jane and Ben Spiller said, "Due to the bad weather, dangerous riding conditions and therefore safety reasons, the Toy Run this year has had to be CANCELLED.

"Unfortunately we cannot control the event - and everyone's safety comes first. We know that this will be a huge disappointment to many, but we want to do all we can to ensure that the gifts still get to the children.

"Therefore; High Close School, Wokingham (RG40 1TT) will be open from noon - 3pm to receive your gifts, if you can make your own way there, preferably by car. There will be vans at Amec Foster Wheelers from 12am today so that the presents still reach the children.Smiths of Whitely Wood will be open tomorrow also to receive gifts.

"We are truly sorry. This does suck - but everyone's safety comes first. There will be other years which we will just have to make bigger and better. Thank you for your understanding, and thanks you to everyone that has been involved in the planning and preparation of this years event.Thank God for Bikers"
