The 2017 Late Mail Postie Ride arrived in Mudgee on Friday afternoon, having raised over $115,000, which will provide over one hundred flights to families with children needing medical treatment.
The fourth annual ride saw 33 riders, 10-12 which were new for this year. They went from Windeyer to Jenolan Caves, Braidwood, Jindabyne, Tumbarumba, Grenfell, Molong, and back to Mudgee. Raising funds for Wings4Kidz, who provide free transport for families of unwell children from regional NSW.
Organiser Jason Turner said, “I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, we saw some really beautiful scenery – green hills, blue skies and snow topped mountains”.
“The locals were all very welcoming, everywhere you go they’re really happy to see you and want to know all about what’s going on. And they’re always willing to donate and help us out.
“The fundraising has been exceptionally good, some of the guys have raised huge amounts.Which makes it three years in a row of bettering the previous year.”
