2017 Cycle QLD Charity Bike Ride

Medico Transport Services – Cycle QLD Fundraiser

Target $20,000 per year

 

Please support Goondiwindi’ s local bike riders Angus and Sandie Wilson, Marg Jackson, Helen Dimond, Pauline Rae & Dr Rowena Sheppard as they ride in support of Care Goondiwindi’s Medico Transport Services!. This year the Cycle Queensland 2017 Tour Adventure leaves from Goondiwindi on 2nd September and arrives at the Gold Coast on 10th September, a ride of 535 kilometres!!

Care Goondiwindi’s – Medico Transport Services is an essential service that assists our community’s most highly disadvantaged and vulnerable residents to get to and from local medical appointments such as the doctors, hospital, optometrist, physio and counselling services. The Medico Transport Service is offered to residents in the Goondiwindi, Boggabilla & Toomelah areas. We ask for a gold coin donation.

The Medico Transport Services has being running for over 7 years and has assisted on average 180 pick ups per month. Last financial year this service assisted in 1928 medical appointments being met, ensuring that our residents – were able to attend and receive the medical assistance that they required.

Unfortunately the funding to continue this service has now been cut and Care Goondiwindi desperately needs support to ensure that we can continue to deliver this essential service. For some residents, this service is the difference between receiving or not receiving medical support – something many of us might take for granted.

Manager’s Message

The news for us this month is settling into our new premises. The big move is now all finished and everything is up and running as usual. I would like to thank everyone who helped, it was a mammoth effort by all staff and volunteers to see this through and I would like to acknowledge the extra hard work put in by everyone. This assistance helped to make it all happen as smoothly as it did. A big shout out to Barry from Lightfoot Removals, thankyou! It was terrible weather and you soldiered on through it all. I would also like to thank the Gundy Mens Shed—Peter and John—we would never have got organised as quickly as we did without your help—I think I owe you both a couple of cold beers for this one!!

Everyone is welcome to come down and say Hi and check out our new home, operating hours are the same, as are all of our contact details.
