On Saturday 23rd November Pembroke Soup were delighted to welcome the 3 Amigos at the annual Christmas Soup Event. Each Christmas just one charity/community group is given the floor and are set to receive all the entrance money for that day. It was very well attended with people paying £4.00 entrance. Every-one received delicious home-made soup, made by the Pembroke Soup team and receive freshly baked bread, donated by the Long Meadow Bakery which is located on Pembroke High Street. The 3 Amigos were to receive £200 from the day’s event. Also a large number of donated new toys for poorly children are awaiting their collection from Pembroke Town Hall and Foundry House on 8th December for the 3 Amigos Annual Toy run. (donation box in both venues)
But, as people at the event were to hear, the now famous toy run and Easter egg run are just a small part of their charity work that continues throughout the year. Through events held, including their annual summer jamboree, they raise and donate over £1000 to each of their charities that include raising funds for :-the children’s ward at Withybush hospital for equipment; ; Dickenson Suite for parents who have recently lost a baby); Glangwilli children’s ward; Dyfed fibromyalgia Support Group; National Children’s homes; Stroke Society ; Palliative Care – funding to help families facing loss to create lasting memories. They 3 Amigos receive many donated items and are successful in selling on virtually all items-even bags of very “pre-enjoyed” cuddly toys where sold for a small donation, to pet owners as dog toys – get in touch if you need to pass on unwanted items…..
Additionally some of the members of the 3 Amigos are members of the “Blood Bikes” carrying blood and organs across county when called.
Many people have cause to be grateful to the 3 Amigos, whether from their direct fund raising or by them supporting others to fund raise. And yes it was Grizz who had a mushy pea bath outside Asda in Pembroke Dock to support Macmillan nurses. Look out for them at carnivals or even walking distances to raise money for charity. And of course spot them on their bikes when there will be a fantastic turn at Pembroke Commons Car Park this year on Sat 8th December, aided by bacon butties provided by Daps Baps .So come and wave them on their journey to the children’s wards. And with them is the “Real Santa”- proven when his long white beard remained attached when tugged forcefully by an enquiring child whilst receiving a present!
The Three Amigos have succeeded in building the reputation of bikers in the community whilst raising many, many of thousands of pounds over the 18 plus years that they have been a“high powered” presence in Pembrokeshire. As they explained, they are out in all weathers and throughout the year through their ongoing charity work. The applause they received at Pembroke Soup will be echoed over the county for the work they have committed to……
