Canteen Road Raise Riders At Eudunda

During 20th to 26th March 2021, riders raised funds for Canteen during thier 5th tour.

Every year, another 23,000 young people are affected by cancer, whether it’s a close family member’s diagnosis or their own. That’s 63 young people every day.

Over the past four years the Road Raise event has raised over $650,000. These vital funds have provided more than 16,000 hours of vital support to young people aged 12-25 who are impacted by cancer.

The Journey sounds simple: On Day 1 the riders left Adelaide for Normanville. On day 2 they made Goolwa, day 3 Harndorf, day 4 Tanunda, day 5 Clare, day 6 Rowland Flat (Barossa), day 7 Back to Adelaide (via Mount Lofty)

Local cyclist Luke Herriman caught up with the cyclists when they called in to Eudunda
On Day 6 of the Clare to Rowland Flat (Barossa Valley) section which was also the longest day at 202 kms with 1,832 metres of elevation.

Overall, the average day was between 121km and 202km, and overall the riders travelled 1,000 kms and faced 11,800 metres of climbing elevation.

This was an amazing feat as the riders were not professionals, only enthusiasts wishing to raise funds for Canteen, and they rode the equivilent of Mt Everest AND Mt Kosciuszko combined!

Also amazing was that the ride started out to raise $200,000 and the amount currently raised is $298,106. Well Done Everyone!

Check out the Canteen Road Raise website.

Ed: Thanks to Judy Partingon for spotting the riders arriving and to Luke Herriman for responding by taking photos and chatting with the riders.

Eudunda Community Op Shop – Front Desk & Clothing

Volunteers at the Eudunda Community Op Shop have been thrilled with the response from both locals and afar, embracing the new shop with gusto.

Comments on how nice the shop has been set up, and how bright and airy it is with room to move have been greatly appreciated by all.

Op Shop Coordinator Annie Wilson explained,
“We appreciate all those comments, it has made all the hard work worthwhile. There are still more things we want to do, especially painting, both inside and out, and this will have a major impact on the outlook of the shop.

“We are amazed with the generosity of the community, and this includes neighboring townships who have been donating fantastic goods for the shop. It has been a very busy time for our volunteers, as many times the goods are flying off the shelves as quick as we can place them there. This definitely has shown there has been a need in the community, and we are thrilled to be able to fill it.

“I would like to thank our small group of amazing volunteers who have managed to keep the shop going, and flourishing”

The Eudunda Community Op Shop is open every Wednesday to and including Saturday from 10am to 2pm.

Come and have a look for yourself.

Have You Ever Considered Becoming a Volunteer Driver?

Mid North Passenger Service – Banner

HAVE you ever considered becoming a volunteer driver?

Are you recently retired or do you find yourself with some spare time.
Are you unemployed and looking to get back into the workforce?

Becoming a volunteer driver could be for you!

The Mid North Community Passenger Network (MNCPN) is seeking volunteer drivers to help in and around the local community.

All you need is a current driver’s licence and some spare time.
A basic accreditation is required to become a volunteer driver which is free.
All volunteers are fitted with a uniform and only drive the allocated network car.

The Network provides a vital service transporting people of all ages for medical and specialist appointments.

The Network has increased its services to the Mid North Region by 45 per cent since October 2008 and is growing rapidly.

Network Coordinator, Damien Graham said,
“More volunteer drivers are always needed for this vital community service to keep going.”

Currently there are only 4 drivers in the Eudunda area.
The Eudunda area is the most used area in the Mid North and having more drivers helps share the load.

Damien continued,
“Volunteer drivers get to meet and talk with people who they would not usually come in contact with.

“It’s a confidence boosting experience and many drivers come back with interesting stories of their experiences.”

And it’s not all work.

“There is often an opportunity to socialise or do some shopping or sight-seeing while waiting for the passenger to finish their appointment,” Damien said.

“Being a volunteer driver is a very rewarding experience.”

To contact Damien for further information ph 88 421 677 or www.passengernetwork.com.au
