WITH the Fruit Loop Ride kicking off from Princess Park in Shepparton this weekend, Owner of Avanti Plus and ride participant, Trevor Morris will be hanging up his helmet this year, after having played a part in raising more than $350,000 for GV Hospice Care Service over the last 15 years.
Kicking off in Shepparton on Sunday, September 13, the Fruit Loop Ride will see between 20 and 250 participants take on a 50km, 100km or 180km ride, but this year will see the addition of a mini market organised by Laura May, which will see all profits raised donated to hospice.
Trevor said, “The ride is, and always has been, for the benefit of equipping the palliative care unit to help them continue the level of care they give to the community when it is needed most.
“Although I’m going to be hanging up my boots this year, it’s a real sense of achievement to have been involved in raising that sort of money for hospice and helped so many people in the community.
“I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the committee behind me and am grateful for their involvement over the years.”
Donations can be made on the day at the registration desk or in store at Avanti Plus, 126-128 High Street, Shepparton or at GV Hospice Care Services, 102 Balaclava Road.
