The annual UpRight Derbyshire biker convoy has supported Derbyshire specialist charity Safe and Sound this year – delivering hundreds of gifts and food hampers to families
affected by child exploitation.

More than 200 bikers, dressed as Santa and elves travelled from Long Eaton to Safe and Sound’s offices in Darley Abbey on Saturday to deliver the hampers.

Tracy Harrison, CEO of Safe and Sound, said: “We are very grateful to be chosen as the recipient for Upright this Christmas. “Many of the families that we support have faced increased challenges and pressures
compounded by the pandemic and I know that they and the children and young people will greatly appreciate the gifts.

“Equally important is the fact that they will appreciate the sentiment behind Upright Derbyshire – reiterating to our families that they are not alone, that support is available and that they are in people’s thoughts at this time of year.”
