In its 15th year, the family fun day will take place at the Tomago Bowling and Sports Club on 9 September.
With a growing number of Medowie and Tilligerry members, the Longriders motorcycle club are well known around Port Stephens for their annual family fun day, where they fund raise for a new charity each year.
This year, the Longriders have chosen a worthy cause to support: Rush Youth Mentoring.
Rush Mentoring supports local high schools by placing a significant role model in a young person’s life.
The volunteer mentor supports the young person with social, emotional and in some cases academic support so that they can achieve their full potential, through weekly sessions.
The mentors are dedicated men and women aged over 18 years old, from all walks of life.
They are willing to build a relationship of trust and will encourage young people to achieve their personal best while providing support to negotiate life’s challenges.
Rush Mentoring does not receive government assistance or funding to run their program, so subsequently rely on the kindness of community groups to help them to continue the wonderful job they do for young people.
The day will commence at 11am and run through until around 4pm.
A family friendly atmosphere is promised, with plenty of activities for the kids as well as the older kids.
Elvis the mechanical bull will be there, with prizes up for grabs, as well as face painting, jumping castles, a petting zoo and pony rides.
Budge, from Longriders CMC told News Of The Area, “We are looking forward to another fantastic year, with something for everyone, and raising lots of funds for a really worthy cause.”
“We have 13 bike show categories for the bikes this year, raising it from 10 last year, with a people’s choice for the cars.”
“Everybody is welcome to come along and spend the day catching up with old friends you might not see from year to year, and all for a great cause,” he said.
