A Feltham businesswoman has ditched the nodding dog and furry dice and taken vehicle decoration to a whole new level to raise money for charity.
Anne Merrett, who runs Anne and Paul's Feltham Wool Shop on the High Street, has been raisng chuckles as she rides her cuddly rabbit covered motorbike dressed as a chicken or Easter bunny.
And it is not only Easter time when she and her bike get a makeover, at Christmas the vehicle is disguised as a festive tree, and Halloween is another good opportunity to get creative.
Mrs Merrett, of Ferrers Avenue in West Drayton, makes all the outfits herself.
She said: "I have been riding since 1978, I do have a car but only use it when I need it for work. I love getting through the traffic and being able to park easily, I have also met a lot of nice people who do an awful lot for charity.
"There are organised runs so we collect Easter eggs for The Variety Club, which gives them to children at hospitals and homes. This year, 200 of us gathered 4,200 eggs when we did The Reading Toy Run."
The 53-year-old normally gives the rabbits she collects for her bike to children at the end of the event, but this year she has kept them on the bike so she can raise a few more giggles.
She said: "I love dressing up and making people laugh, I am growing old disgracefully. My husband puts up with it."
The bike display is not the only way she will raise money for a good cause this year.
She plans to take part in the Race For Life, dressed as Eve with flesh coloured tights, appropriately places leaves and a toy snake.
Mrs Merrett said: "I am not really and exhibitionist, much! I just like making people smile."
