Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

MANJIMUP Ro­tary Club mem­bers put their hands up with a fi­nan­cial do­na­tion to sup­port fel­low South West Ro­tary mem­bers as they em­barked on a 1000km bike ride for a good cause last week.

The in­au­gu­ral ride for the club is be­ing used to raise money for So­lar­isCare and Aus­tralian Ro­tary Health.

Rid­ers are the South Bun­bury Ro­tary Club pres­i­dent elect Tony Critch­ley and mem­ber David Castro.

Stop­ping in Manjimup on Mon­day night, the Manjimup Ro­tary Club do­nated about $2500 to­wards the cause.

“This is some­thing we’d like to do ev­ery year,” Mr Castro said.

“We hope if it’s a suc­cess, it’ll be an an­nual fundrais­ing event for South Bun­bury.”

Mr Critch­ley said if it be­came an an­nual event, Manjimup would be one of the main stops.

Manjimup Ro­tary Club’s pres­i­dent elect Alex Al­ban joined the rid­ers on an 83km stretch on Sun­day from Nan­nup to Bridgetown.

“The big hill out of Nan­nup to­wards Bridgetown was tough,” Mr Castro said.

He added that he and Mr Critch­ley wanted to cover 70km a day for 15 days. Af­ter start­ing in Bun­bury, they are head­ing through towns such as Bus­sel­ton, Mar­garet River, Manjimup and Al­bany, be­fore head­ing back to Bun­bury.

To do­nate money the de­tails are: Bankwest, BSB 306-020, ac­count num­ber 4185004 and ref­er­ence So­laris plus a sur­name.
