United Riders MC is supporting Anglicare NSW South, NSW West & ACT with a dice run on 9 September 2023 to raise funds for Anglicare’s Emergency Relief service in the Central West.
A dice run is an organised event where riders follow a designated route and stop at predetermined locations to give a roll of the dice. Scores are recorded and tallied, leading to prizes for high scorers. Riders involved in the September fundraising event will pay a fee to participate and local businesses are being approached to provide sponsorships and donations of prizes. Raffles will take place throughout the day. United Riders and Anglicare are hopeful that local businesses will continue to sign on to help support local vulnerable community members.
Dallas Holmes, Emergency Relief Coordinator for Anglicare NSW West, said the fundraiser could not have come at a better time. “There has been a dramatic increase in need among people seeking assistance due to various factors including the extremely high cost of living, homelessness, disability, trauma, mental health, domestic and family violence and addiction.”
Anglicare operates Emergency Relief services, in a number of NSW west locations including Bathurst, Dubbo, Orange, Parkes and Rylstone, often in partnership with local Anglican parishes.
United Riders MC is a not-for-profit, family-oriented organisation open to anyone with a passion for motorcycling. Members from Bathurst, Orange and Sydney meet on a fortnightly basis to attend various community events.
United Riders connection to Anglicare came through late chaplain Barry “Baz” Porter, the previous Emergency Relief Coordinator for Anglicare NSW West, who tragically passed away in October of last year. As a member of the God’s Squad Christian motorcycle club, Baz shared a connection with local riders. “Baz Porter was a deeply respected and loved man, not just in the broader community, but very specifically in the motorcycle scene”, said Mr Holmes. “He had a profound impact on many local riders and United Riders want to support the program Baz was running as a commemoration of their friend and as a way to address needs in the community.”
