Students get on their bikes to help charity

A LANDSDALE resident is helping raise funds and awareness for a bicycle charity as part of her university program.

Elizabeth Jones and other students are helping Bicycles for Humanity (WA) through Curtin University’s John Curtin Leadership Academy.

They will raise awareness of B4HWA with corporate sponsors to assist in fundraising, shipments and bike repairs.

The students will also help identify opportunities to develop similar programs in indigenous Australian communities.

The funds raised will help ship a container to Africa while raising awareness locally of the opportunity to donate bicycles.

The academy is an undergraduate program that aims to develop future leaders with community values and entrepreneurial spirit.

Other northern suburbs students involved in this semester’s program include Kunal Shah (Mindarie), Matthew Russo (Joondalup), Nomalizo Mqhum (Ashby) and Shayla Prescott (Clarkson).
