Members of the Indian Motorcycle Riders Group drop by with donations

When the bikers walked in the front door of the Langley Food Bank Saturday morning, executive director Iain Mair greeted them with a big smile and a hearty handshake.

“Good to see you all,” Mair said.

It was not the first time the members of the Indian Motorcycle Riders Group (IMRG) have dropped by the bank on 203 Street in Langley City.

This time, they arrived with donations of food and other supplies, $650 in cash, and a plaque of appreciation.

“It’s amazing, what they’ve done,” Mair said.

“We really appreciate their effort and all they’ve done for us.”

Mair said the food bank serves an estimated 1,700 people at its Langley and Aldergrove locations.

The riders, all fans of the legendary motorcycle brand, did not arrive on their bikes.

It was a little too wet and slippery for that, they said.

Club president Wayne Plante said because the price of everything is going up and more and more people arer using the food bank to help stretch their budgets, it made sense to donate.

“It make you feel good to give,’ Plante said.

Next year, he said, the club plans to make a bigger contribution.

Plante said the newly-founded Langley chapter of IMRG, a world-wide association of Indian brand motorcycle owners, is just over a year old, with 44 members.
