Rylstone News: Postie bikes make a dash for Rylstone

Rylstone Public School became an exciting motorbike heaven for young students when more than 25 Honda CT110 ‘postie’ bike riders from the Variety Postie Dash rode into the school grounds on Wednesday, day three of their travels through outback NSW.

The Dash was half-way through its six days charity ride to raise money for children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs. It started at the Good Guys Kotara on October 30 and travelled through St Albans, Lithgow, Trunkey Creek, Orange, Wellington, Rylstone, Muswellbrook, Moonan Flat and Gloucester before returning to Newcastle on November 4.

The ‘posties’ had lunch at Rylstone School provided by the P&C. During the stopover, Motoring Events Manager Stuart Telfer presented a cheque for $1757 to School Principal Jodee Burcher for a sensory garden.

The Children’s Charity Regional Director Jason Bourke said that each year dedicated Variety ‘posties’ raise more than $100,000 for children in need across regional NSW.
