The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

East Grampians Health Ser­vice Mur­ray to Moyne Cy­cle Re­lay teams are ramp­ing up their train­ing and money-rais­ing ef­forts, with their next fundraiser an Orange Whip @ J Ward event on Fri­day.

The Cranks and De­fib­ril­la­tors, pre­par­ing to ride in the 525-kilo­me­tre event from Swan Hill to Port Fairy on April 6 and 7, have or­gan­ised the event for 6pm in the gar­dens of his­toric J Ward in Ararat.

Health ser­vice com­mu­nity li­ai­son of­fi­cer Jodie Hol­well said the fundraiser would be a great event.

“It is fea­tur­ing the dy­namic lo­cal eight-piece band Orange Whip, sup­ported by young lo­cal vo­cal­ist Char­lotte Har­wood,” she said.

For the first time in many years, East Grampians Health Ser­vice will field a full team of 20 riders, plus four vol­un­teer bus driv­ers and two vol­un­teer sup­port crew mem­bers, as well as a team man­ager.

Money the teams raise this year will go to­wards re­plac­ing treat­ment chairs in the health ser­vice’s dial­y­sis unit.

Ms Hol­well said Orange Whip @ J Ward was ‘bring your own’ ev­ery­thing, with Ro­tary Club of Ararat hav­ing a gourmet bar­be­cue avail­able, as well as its cof­fee van.

Tick­ets are $30 a per­son, with chil­dren 12 and un­der ad­mit­ted free.

Tick­ets are avail­able from EGHS front re­cep­tion and Fos­ters Mens­land.
