Disappointed by Wirral Egg Run reprieval

First published in Letters

I WAS very disappointed to read that the "Egg Run" has been reprieved.

Many people were delighted that the noise, pollution and disruption of this annual event would not take place in 2013 due to lack of sponsorship and that our roads would not be blocked up for hours yet again. 

And who has come to the rescue as a new sponsor?

Why it's United Utilities who we have to pay for our water and sewerage services. 

They are using OUR money to keep this unpleasant and unwelcome event going.

And NO you can't move to another service provider in protest as United Utilities is a monopoly. 

Why this is when we now have a choice of energy and phone providers is a mystery but hopefully one day there will be a choice and then United Utilities will lose a lot of customers.

What is wrong with people? Why do you feel it necessary to put down a charity run, something that is generating money and hope for sick children?

Between yourself and M Brown I've never heard such stupid comments, you are selfish and only concern yourself with how things will affect your lives - think of somebody else for a change!!!

What selfish people. They should hang their heads in shame, go and do some voluntary work to help other people rather than making such an issue about this ANNUAL fun charity event.

Mr Peters has a point though.

Although I'm sure it works out to a piffling amount per customer, United Utilities DO have the monopoly here and - on principal alone - should provide customers with the option to say how they want this "surcharge" spent.

Sure, this is a charitable event, and therefore an emotive subject, that most people would subscribe to but that shouldn't change the principle.

What happens in future years should a monopoly company decide to compulsorily donate part of their customers charges on something that may be a bit more contentious such as badger culling or foxhunting without giving customers an opt out?

How pathetic. It's one day a year, the route is well publicised so it's pretty easy to avoid the congestion. If it's such a big problem for you, you could always walk instead. Bleedin miserable nimbys.

For goodness sake it is 1 hour a year, just go to the supermarket and get enough supplies in to see you through this traumamatic event. Think of me I wont be able to get my car out of my drive for 1 hour on march 17th what will I do, my whole world will end.

During the early 90's I was a very proud member of the Royal Air Force Police serving in Germany and we carried out many charity events including a massive parade of floats through the local towns using large 4 tonne trucks travelling at walking pace for about 8 hours. Now I am a proud rider every year in the egg run carrying on supporting worthwhile charities. I just wish all the people moaning could just give that little bit of tolerance once a year for a group of people who want to take part in an event that mixes something they enjoy and raises money for charity.
Not only that they are going to be extremely critical of a company who uses money from their charity pot to support it. Maybe M Brown and R Peters can now criticise the RAF for allowing its Policemen to use their time to take part in charity fundraising events.

United Utilities is a private company and answers financially to its shareholders NOT people who simply use the services they provide. Ergo if they want to sponsor anything it is down to them. It would have been a different matter if our utilities had not been privatised.

So Mr Peters, complain all you like but unless you are a shareholder with voting rights all you are doing is wasting breath and making yourself unpopular.

May I clarify to R Peters that this valuable event, which only takes place ONCE a year and on a Sunday, is for Charity! A sick child in Hospital recieves a Chocolate Egg and the money that is raised is used to purchase specialist equipment for Sick Children and Premature Babies. I find it very hard that someone can be so selfish and insensitive. I myself work within the Hospital and I know how valuble and important this day is. Also I have family members who give up their time to help on this day along with family actually riding their bikes for this worthwhile cause.
R Peters, may I kindly suggest you re-arrange your plans for a few hours that day. Maybe do your shopping on the Saturday or even take an alternative route, but please don't moan about the traffic congestion and the so called pollution, it's really not that important in the grand scheme of things! ( if your really concerned about the pollution etc, why don't you walk on foot and do your bit!)

And as for United Utilities.....Thank you!

I want to start off by saying that I volunteer full time for a charity that helps people who are terminally ill.

I 100% support fund-raising events for charities as they wouldn't be able to run without generous support and donations from the general public. The whole reason charities exist is because of a lack of support in services that should be provided to us by our government.

However, it has always struck me as a little odd that it is considered a good thing to give sick children chocolate and sweets when a lot of thought and consideration goes in to providing them healthy meals in the hospital. I have also heard in the past that the mountains of eggs that get donated to the hospitals are very often thrown away, which seems ultimately pointless to me.

I am also and wary of the costs involved in running an event like this. Surely it would be better to donate the money involved directly to Claire House or Alder Hey instead of spending it on having to pay stewards and police escorts etc.

Very often, in cases like this, the intention to do good is negated by the practicalities of the event itself.

Why not donate the money spent on chocolate eggs, fuel for vehicles, police stewards etc. etc. directly to the children's charities involved instead. Or come up with an alternative event that doesn't put the general public at an inconvenience - like the Wirral Walk or the Cycling events that took part this year.

I also happen to live precisely on the route of the run and although I personally can't moan about having to spend a day in the garden instead of venturing out, I can understand how some people may find it an inconvenience.

I just feel that a general re-think may be in order for the whole event. I think there are certain aspects that could be changed in order to make the event more worthwhile for the charities involved and also reducing the impact on people who find the event troublesome.

For goodness sake, it's Easter! And it comes around once a year! I have heard it all now, whether a child eats the Chocolate Egg or not, does it really matter. I am sure the parents won't mind them eating a chocolate egg if they were well enough to do so.
Not all children recieve eggs, some smaller children recieve maybe a teddy, would you have an issue with that too?

I wonder if you would make as much fuss for the Annual bikeathon or the Wirral walk or even the Santa Dash?
It would appear that in those certain areas it would equally be as congested and policed/stewarded also.

The children at Claire House also benefit from this too, as does lots of other Children right across the Wirral.

All of the eggs get equally distributed and none get "thrown away"!

May I add that the majority of stewards on the Egg Run are volunteers as of the helpers.

I am sure the Children will be very appreciative of you all staying indoors or changing your plans for this very special day.
Thankfully it's only a minority of you, otherwise were would be be?

R Peters, I can only assume that your letter is intended to be deliberately provocative. Surely nobody is so selfish that they couldn't set aside personal antipathy towards the noise and smell of motorcycle engines for ONE DAY A YEAR, and think instead of what the Egg Run means to sick children.

The strength of feeling on this issue is clearly demonstrated by the fact that even our resident troll is too frightened to support you.

How utterly selfish! So some roads are out if use for a couple of hours (with plenty of notice). And there is noise and fumes for an hour or so. Sounds no different to my area on Bonfire night. Maybe we should cancel that too? As a mother, I applaud and appreciate anyone that would give up their time and money to make a special parade to bring gifts for my sick child in hospital, and to raise funds and awareness for facilities for babies and children to recover. Yes, there are other ways of fundraising, but why not this one? I think the number of spectators each year shows that this event is enjoyed not only by the families receiving the eggs, or the staff working with the children, but also to the wider community. I'm delighted that United Utilities has stepped in to help. I think it'd be a sad world if we all has such selfish attitudes as R Peters!

@JohnON @ DottyMantooth - you may see it as a reasonable argument....but would you say the same thing about the liverpool marathon, or bikeathon, race for life or any other worthwhile charity event that happens once a year. Yes money is spent on marshalls and police - but the bikers didn't ask for this. Originally the run was just 20 bikes doing something for the sick children. No roads needed to be closed, and the bikers would have been out there anyway so forget your pollution argument.
The same rules apply today - the comittee may want to make it "official" but regarless if they say the run is going ahead or not - bikers will still do the run as always as they don't care if the roads are closed, they are just willing to give up their own free time for a good cause.
You are both in a minority of people who are frustrated by having your road closed for 2 hours once a year - whilst the thousands of bikers, and spectators who love this annual event want to continue to add to its history.

also it pollutes the environment!
donate online and make a difference in that way so it goes on a machine rather than giving them an unhealthy fattening egg....
i hasten to add I am not the writer of this letter above and many of my friends agree with me,just cannot be bothered to waste time on here commenting....if you are not interested in motorbikes(which most people are not) it is a pain in the ****.
United utilities should realise the average joe is NOT in favour of this jolly day out for the bikers...CLEAR OFF.
Mr.Peters is the silent majority....Lets see a member of parliament support this egg run and then see if they get voted in...the answer is they won't and NO.....
Finally,the moronic comments on here....he is expressing his opinion as I am....to question if he has a condition and say he has spoken garbage,if you don't like the fact he is being open and honest ignore him and stay in your own group of sheep.Just because it is for charity does not mean everyones agrees...I bet if you added up the cost of the eggs £10000 at most.....my mate donated that for running the london marathon..a much better example...CLEAR OFF TO YOUR BIKER RALLIES AND STAY THERE.

@pooboy. I have read your comments on here previously about the egg run and do appreciate your right to free speech but I think you want to go and see an anger management councilor. So in my response to your post I will also be open and honest. If you dont like the egg run then there is a whole country for you to CLEAR OFF to. I live in Eastham and my local is the TAP and last year I was lucky enough to see the cheque presentations and the wonderful people these cheques were presented to enabling them to carry on their work. Even the Mayor was there to support us. So final comment If you dont like it CLEAR OFF there is a big country available many parts of it dont have egg runs. But check first so you dont have to dislike Manchesters scooter run or say Royal Wooten Bassett where an 18 year old girl arranged for over 10'000 bikes to ride through raising money for a charity or any other place where you might get disruption for one day a year. as you say just being open and honest!
