MCNEVINS TAMWORTH FUNDRAISING EVENT FOR 1200KMS FOR KIDS: CHARITY BIKE RIDE
Presenting cheque to the Tamworth Hospital for $31,200 for vital medical equipment.
McNevins Motel in Tamworth put its full support behind the 1200kms for Kids: Charity Bike Ride, raising money for sick kids which aims to buy much needed medical equipment for sick children in rural areas through the Humpty Dumpty Foundation and to also raise funds for the Royal Childrens Hospital Foundation in Brisbane. The participants rode from Brisbane to Sydney and passed through Tamworth on their way on Oct 16, 2011 and were greeted by locals who were attending a Family Fun Day at McNevins Motel Tamworth specifically to raise more funds for the Charity.
Trevelyan Bale, co-founder of the bike ride, said it was the best reception and the most anyone had done for them along the ride.
McNevins Family Fun Day invited locals from Tamworth out to the 3.5 acre property for a sausage sizzle, jumping castle, face-painting, raffles, an auction and some absolutely amazing local talent played all afternoon, including The Crosby Sisters and Those Gals.
The Bike Ride is in its fifth year and wants to continue to raise its profile so that more people get involved and support this amazing cause.
Next year the ride will be starting in Sydney and going to Brisbane.
