If you attended the Australian Four-Day Enduro in Cessnock in April, there’s a good chance you were assisted by a volunteer from Cessnock Lions Club or the Cessnock Men’s Shed and Community Garden.
The two organisations jointly assisted Cessnock Motorcycle Club at the event by directing on-site traffic and ensuring parking and vehicle movements flowed well in several locations, utilising close to 50 volunteers in the process.
The clubs collected and split $1050 from the various parking points, mostly from the Cessnock Racecourse where the final moto was held on April 7.
The motorcycle club was pleased to donate an additional $1000, to accompany the funds donated by the generous spectators during the event.
“The club is truly thankful for Lions and the Shed team for gathering their troops at rather short notice to ensure parking and spectator movement could be controlled safely at several very busy locations,” Cessnock Motorcycle Club president Dave Blake said.
Lions Club treasurer and Men’s Shed president, Peter Torenbeek said these funds will be shared between the two groups, and in turn will support various local community activities.
The enduro committee presented a donation of $2000 to Millfield Public School’s P&C the week following the event, to thank the school for hosting control points on two days of the competition.
