The Variety Postie Bike Dash is an annual six day charity ride throughout NSW on Honda CT110 Postie Bikes.
The event, this year held between 5th - 10th November, goes off the beaten track, travelling through the bush and countryside, stopping in at rural towns & schools for meals and entertainment along the way. Click here to view more about the Variety Children's Charity - Postie Bike Dash.
The 'postie dashers' first overnight stop was right here in North Haven on Sunday 5th November. To help raise some additional funds, First National North Haven held a raffle and kid’s colouring-in competition throughout October to co-inside with the Postie Bike Dash and raised $966 with the support of our local community. Our office also donated a further $1,000 to the cause, totalling $1966 in local fundraising.
The bike riders attended Oasis By The River restaurant on Sunday 5th
November, where the raffle was drawn and colouring-in winners announced. Congratulations to major prize winner, Glenn Vinson who won the Ingenia Holidays Bonny Hills (previously Big 4 Holiday Park) accommodation voucher worth $750.
Stewart O’Brien, Principal of First National North Haven, said “it was a successful event and a great cause that First National North Haven were proud to be a part of. All the best to the riders on the remainder of their journey.”
