  • Fundraising

    All money raised is donated to the Rural Fire Service

  • How is the money raised?

    Here is how you can assist our cause in raising money.

    Ride ticket Sales

    Ride ticket sales is our main source of raising money. You can buy a ticket knowing that all the money raised by ticket sales will be donated to the Rural Fire Service. Even if you're not going to go in the ride you can still buy a ticket knowing that the money is going to a good place (and you get a beer and sausage sandwich as well).

    Raffle Ticket Sales

    Raffle ticket sales are also great in bumping up the money raised. Raffle prizes are donated by local businesses and raffle tickets are sold on the evening of the ride with winners announced there and then on the night.

    Donations

    Donations are always accepted! With 100% of any donation going into the total tally raised and handed over to the Rural Fire Service we will be happy to accept any donation be it $10, $100, $1000 or $10 000. For details on how and where to donate send us a message on the contact tab at the top of the page.

  • History

    How the Charity Santa Ride began

    It all started with a group of 11 friends who used to ride to the pub every Thursday night for the pub meal deal.

     

    One night, one of the group Brenda van Heuzen was feeling festive and put it out there “If I buy Santa Suits, would you guys be crazy enough to wear them and ride to the Pub?”. “Of course they hollered ’YEAAH!”, so she scooted off to Spotlight to bag 13 x 10 buck Santa Suits.”

     

    In 2005 those crazy 11 locals cheerily rode to the Husky pub sporting the hottest Santa attire for a fun night. The original Santa crew was made up of locals Tracy and John Gibson, Vickie and Brenda van Heuzen, Travis Meadows, Fiona Chiam, John McKee, Ross Boardman, Andrew McKenzie, Craig Mather and Natalia Goozeff.

     

    When they arrived at the pub, Craig Mather rode through the back bar and we all went and sat outside at the rear of the pub. Paul McGroder, the publican, saw us coming down the street and jumped on the festive wagon offering a free BBQ and drink if we rounded up 50 Santas for 2006.

     

    Well that got Brenda thinking, if we charge everyone $15 to enter, we can give that money to a Charity.

     

    With the Husky Fire Brigade as the first charity of choice the Charity Santa Ride began….
