The nomination for Coffs Harbour and Districts Riding for the Disabled was made by a post office team member at Bonville Post Office. Earlier in the year Australia Post team members were tasked with nominating a community group or not-for-profit within their local communities which is making a difference to the community with successful nominees receiving funding of up to $1,000 each. Australia Post General Manager Community and Stakeholder Engagement, Nicky Tracey, said, “Over $400,000 in total has been awarded through People of Post grants to meaningful initiatives in support of local communities, including volunteer-run organisations, sporting groups and mental health programs located across metro, regional and remote communities of Australia.” By Andrea FERRARI The Coffs Harbour Riding for the Disabled Association provides well controlled, safe riding classes for clients.
