Bike workshop for overseas aid

SkillsTech Australia in association with Rotary Redcliffe is conducting a Bicycle restore, repair, make roadworthy day at the Bracken Ridge campus Bicycle workshop. The aim of the workshop is to restore back to road worthiness, the donated bicycles stored at SkillsTech Australia, to be then distributed overseas to communities in need of bicycles through the Redcliffe Rotary overseas aid program.

Volunteer workshop days will be held on the first Saturday of each Month from 9am – 3pm. There is a limit of 10 volunteers at any workshop. Instruction will be provided on the day for mechanical procedures. You will require suitable work shop clothing in the form of long pants and totally closed leather (or similar) shoes.

So if you are an individual who would like to take up this opportunity or a club or group who can see benefit in this community work, while picking up some mechanical tips along the way, then register your interest by sending an email to Brett Richardson. Groups or individuals will be coordinated to participate in each workshop.

As the current stock of bicycles is refurbished, more bicycles will be needed to continue the program. So if you have any or know of any unwanted bicycles, then please bring them along to the Bracken Ridge campus.

    I would like to be involved (commitments permitting). I have a little bit of exterience working with bicycles, but I wouldn’t call myself a ‘Bicycle Mechanic’.
