Auspire – Australia Day Council of Western Australia, in conjunction with the City of Joondalup awarded our Founder and CEO, Alanagh Godderidge, the Community Citizen of the Year, at the Australia Day Awards. Alanagh believes that no one knows the strengths of a community more than the people who live within it. Alanagh is very aware that her strong team of volunteers, her board, and the coastal community in which she lives enabled this recognition. The City of Joondalup awards have been covered in depth by website PerthNow.
In October, our Founder and CEO, Alanagh Godderidge was successful in being granted $10 000 for the organisation, specifically our Moving People Program – Cycling Without Age Sorrento. Here she is at the morning tea presentation at Westfield Whitfords. Alanagh is very aware the success of this promotion was due to the local supporters, who value a stronger coastal community. Nothing beats the smiles of our Trishaw passengers – with the sun on their back, the wind in their hair, as stories are shared from yesteryear.
