2017 Variety Postie Bike Dash will be having a lunch stop in Krambach this Sunday, November 5 on the first day of the six day tour..

The bikes are expected to arrive at the Krambach Hotel around noon, where the riders will enjoy lunch before they hit the road again around 2pm towards North Haven.

Kids in need in regional NSW will have access to more opportunities to reach their full potential thanks to the more than 40 Honda CT110 Postie bike riders taking part in the 2017 Dash.

The ‘posties’ aim to raise more than $135,000 for kids living with disabilities, chronic illness or who are facing financial or geographic disadvantage. 

“The Variety Postie Bike Dash is a fun way for those with a sense of adventure to help ensure kids in need in regional areas like the Hunter, Mid North Coast and New England get a fair go in life,” Variety – the Children’s Charity head of regional development, Jason Bourke said.

“The money raised by our posties goes a long way to giving the schools visited vital resources such as sensory and play equipment, reading systems and specialist computers which they might not otherwise have access to.”

The event is sponsored by First National Real Estate and Principal of First National Newcastle, George Rafty is excited their company can help give back to Aussie kids in need.

“The team at First National Newcastle City are honoured to support the Variety Postie Bike Dash,” Mr Rafty said.
