Rudd Bikes


On Sunday, Cannon Hill State School student, Xavier Jay, won my 810th Rudd Bike at the annual Morningside Festival.

Over the past fourteen years, I have donated hundreds of Rudd Bikes to Southside schools and community groups to assist in their fundraising.

The Rudd Bikes have helped raise more than $600,000 for schools and community organisations across the Southside.

The first ever Rudd Bike was donated to the Gateway Refugee Support Centre. This terrific organisation directly supports newly arrived migrants in the local area by providing food hampers, welcome packs, accommodation, and opportunities to participate in local activities.

In 2005, I donated my 250th Rudd Bike to Epilepsy Queensland.

In 2008, St James’ Primary School in Coorparoo received my 500th Rudd Bike.

And last year, Morningside State School was the recipient of my 750th Rudd Bike.

On Sunday, I was proud to donate my 800th Rudd Bike to St Thomas’ Primary School in Camp Hill.

Some schools tell me that the Rudd Bikes can raise up to $1,500 for much needed projects and resources including the purchase of electronic whiteboards and air-conditioning units for classrooms.

But it’s not just the financial difference that this program has made to our schools and community groups.

I recently heard about a young boy, Tom, from St Joseph’s Primary School at Kangaroo Point. He was the winner of my 776th Rudd Bike.

He had won the bike at his local school fete. After packing up the brand new, shiny bike into the family car, he stopped and thought for a moment before saying to his family –

“I don’t need this bike. I’ve already got one.”

So what does Tom do? Of his own volition, Tom has the Rudd Bike delivered to the Romero Centre, a terrific local organisation that supports newly arrived migrants, especially refugee children.

This is what makes me proud of the Rudd Bike program.

This is what makes me proud of my local community.

  37. Adelaide is home to many species of cockroaches, including the Australian, American and smaller German varieties. The latter can pose a risk to electrical appliances, which they can invade. Cockroach droppings are also hazardous to health and can trigger asthma attacks and allergies. It is usually necessary to undertake a fumigation treatment to eradicate cockroaches. Our team understands the need to get rid of cockroaches without endangering your health in the long-term. We use cockroach bait gels together with pesticide fumigation with a low toxic formulation.etc. شركة مكافحة النمل الابيض بالدمام شركة رش مبيدات بالدمام شركة مكافحة حشرات بالاحساء شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض+++ we wait you here شركة تنظيف منازل بالرياض شركة تنظيف مجالس بالرياض شركة تنظيف موكيت بالرياض شركة مكافحة حشرات بالرياض

  40. The relative warmth of Adelaide's climates makes it an attractive environment for rats and mice to thrive. These pests often infiltrate homes and set up camp in wall cavities and roofs. They can wreak havoc on your property as they chew through structures and furniture in hopes of locating food and sites for nesting. Their droppings can also cause myriad health problems. If you live close to restaurants or any other businesses related to food, you should be particularly wary of rat infestations. Flicks Adelaide's pest control team inspects homes for rats and mice. We also supply commercial rodent control solutions suited to restaurants and similar businesses..شركة تنظيف بمكة ,شركة تنظيف بخميس مشيط , شركة تنظيف فلل بجدة

  41. Possums in South Australia are protected under the National Parks and Wildlife Act, so harming them can result in you being made to pay heavy fines. A licensed pest manager from Flick can make a house call, set a trap on the roof of your home and catch the possum. Spiders Arachnids such as the venomous Redback spider not only look scary, they are also dangerous to humans. Spider control treatment is often necessary to keep them at bay and off your property. A qualified Flick technician can treat the danger zones in your home including cracks and crevices, lighting, doorways, external window areas, under seating and around down pipes. Such treatment can prevent spiders from proliferating and overrunning your home.
