Ride Holidays' Charity - Te Awakairangi Trust
Since 2018 RIDE Holidays has been working with Te Awakairangi Trust www.takatrust.org.nz.
We would like to acknowledge the support of all our clients who allow us to put bikes in schools. Thank you.
We are also committed to not just handing over a bike and saying go for it. We plan to work with the Trust so the kids learn and are trained in bike maintenance, safety and education.
Our primary goal is put bikes in schools and targeting kids that need them the most, providing an opportunity to learn how to ride a bike - something that you and I take for granted. We are also committed to not just handing over a bike and saying go for it. Recently we set up a maintenance gang to regularly visit the schools we've supported (amongst others) to make sure all the bikes are working properly.
Our target for 2018 was originally 25 bikes for one school. We achieved 50 brand new bikes for two schools - Taitai Central and Randwick Primary School. 2019 was fantastic and we supplied bikes to Tui Glen, Pomare, Naenae Primary and Pukeatua School in Wainuiomata. In 2020 we supplied bikes to Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Te Ara Whanui school, Bairds (Otara) Mainfreight, Avalon Primary, Natone Park, Cannons Creek and Koraunui School. Making it 6 schools for the year. So far in 2021 we’ve raised enough funds to supply bikes for Glen Brae school in Glen Innes, Petone Central School and Te Kura o Hau Karetu in Upper Hutt. We also have a whole shipping container with 170 bikes due in April 2022.
|Te Awakairangi Access Trust is a registered charity (number CC52630). For this reason it will be the trust that takes payment from you so that you are sent an official receipt and can then take advantage of the tax exemptions (only available to New Zealanders I'm afraid) come the end of the financial year. We promise to make this an easy process.||
