The chief of the Outlaws has teamed up with other community members to form a team of good Samaritans to compete with the Easter bunny.

Nearly 1,000 chocolate eggs were donated and delivered to residents and hospitals this Easter, thanks to Stuart Dawson, better known as Dink and his pal Paul Clifford.

The two men came together to help their local community after families were struck by the coronavirus pandemic.

Dink opened the doors of his American-style restaurant in Colwyn Bay to serve free food to anyone in need.

Meanwhile, restaurant manager Paul donated excess inventory from his business, such as fresh eggs, bread and milk, shared between the restaurant and a food bank.



Outlaw biker boss Dink with Paul Clifford, they were both shocked by the number of people in Colwyn Bay who suddenly needed food parcels, triggered by the Covid-19 crisis.

On the second day of closure, Paul was delivering the items and as word got out, donations began to pile up.

And after local supermarkets, including Aldi and Morrisons, donated mountains of chocolate, “Operation Dinky Egg” was launched.

Paul said, “We have provided food to nearly 1,500 community members and have thought of bringing Easter eggs to the children.

“We couldn’t believe the amount of eggs we poured in thanks to the locals and the local supermarkets.

“We received almost 1,000, which allowed us to make bags for anyone in difficulty during the lockout.

“We even dropped them off at hospitals for staff. “

The 38-year-old Rhos on Sea man said that his granddaughter, Mia, had inspired him to help others.

“I just couldn’t think of the children who would do without it, so I hope one day Mia will be proud of me,” he added.

“Our great team has delivered the eggs to people from all walks of life who have been unable to work or run their business and need to turn to benefits due to coronavirus, or those who have been unable to get out because they isolate themselves. “

“We wanted to make sure that nobody would do without it.

“I am really proud of everyone who helped or gave. “
