AFTER the success of the inaugural Shepparton Powercor Tour de Depot, which raised $50,000 for The Community Fund Goulburn Valley, the popular event is set to return to Shepparton this year.

The 2015 event saw cyclists of all ages and abilities hit the road for a 10km ride around Shepparton’s Victoria Park Lake, while the more serious riders tackled the timed event of 20km before joining friends and family to celebrate at the finish line community festival.

This year, Powercor is inviting local charities and community groups to enter a submission for the opportunity to become the official Shepparton charity partner of the 2016 Powercor Tour de Depot, which will again see 100 percent of entry fees going directly to the chosen charity.

Powercor regional business manager, Ian Gillingham urged local charities and community groups to register their interest in becoming this year’s charity partner.

“The Powercor Community Grants program recognises the important role local charities and community groups play in connecting people and positively shaping regional Victoria.

“We are pleased to be in a position to donate 100 percent of entry fees to a local group and we hope the Powercor Tour de Depot will assist a great organisation to meet an immediate need of the Shepparton area.”

Applications to become this year’s charity partner close this Friday, July 15, with the partner being notified on Monday, July 25.
