We are so thrilled to have Personnel Employed at Alcoa Charity Help (PEACH) support our annual South West Bike Trek by covering the cost of $2050.50 worth of equipment needed at the event.
PEACH is a trust fund which is administered and funded by Western Australian Alcoa employees, with nearly 1,000 people contributing each month. Since PEACH began in 1979, several millions of dollars have been distributed to so many worthy causes.
With the support of PEACH, we have been able to secure 3 two-way radios that will assist with communication, to ensure the safety of the riders during each day’s riding. These will replace the current radios that are ineffective and unreliable.
We have also been able to purchase a strobe light to increase the visibility of the event to all other road users. To raise awareness of the event and the Foundation, we have also put the funds towards purchasing banners and a car magnet.
We are so grateful for the generous support of PEACH. We are confident that the purchase of this equipment will lead to very positive outcomes for our 2020 South West Bike Trek. Not only will it help increase the safety of all riders and event personnel, but it will also help us highlight the Foundation and our work.
This year’s South West Bike Trek will take place from October 11 – 17. If you are interested in joining the South West Bike Trek this year, you can contact Event organiser Eric Maddock on 0433 905 703 or via email.
