We’re really chuffed to win the Seniors Award

We have won the Seniors Award at the Local Champions awards sponsored by 7News and RAC. All our volunteers, sponsors and supporters are really chuffed to receive this recognition out of 600 nominations. Recognition is important for a charity. It instills trust within the community we support and allows us to deliver our services with confidence. Take a look at the video 7News produced about our nomination.

Trishaw Number 3 to join fleet

A third trishaw is on the way to join the Motion By The Ocean fleet to provide more rides and more smiles at Sorrento and Mullaloo. This has been possible thanks to support from Ian Goodenough, Federal Member for Moore, and the Stronger Communities grants programme.  Our new trishaw will extend our program which leaves from Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club and Mullaloo Surf Life Saving Club. Want to book a ride for an elderly family member or supported person? It’s free. Use our online form.

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.
