WHEELS FOR HOPE ARRIVES IN RAYMOND TERRACE

A mentoring program which uses a hands-on approach to help students realise their potential today made its way to Raymond Terrace Public School.

Wheels for Hope sees pupils refurbish old bikes alongside community volunteers, before donating them to disadvantaged families.

“I think the main importance is a young person gets to understand that they are useful, that they can do something and they might be able to do something that they never thought they could,” said Centre for Hope CEO, Geraldine Moran.

The program has also been rolled out at Kurri Kurri, thanks to a grant of more than $50,000 from the Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation.
