Motion by the Ocean has received $1000 for new equipment in a People of Post grant from Australia Post.
Motion by the Ocean chief executive and founder Alanagh Godderidge said the grant money would be used to purchase new helmets for the cycling program’s pilots, promotional materials and an online accounting package.
“I manage 50 volunteers and safety is always our priority,” she said.
“It’s about working with the people we have to build bigger, stronger, better communities.”
People of Post grants worth almost $350,000 have been made to 356 community groups.
Australia Post head of community Nicky Tracey said employees were encouraged to put forward nominations based on their own personal connections to local organisations.
“We are delighted that so many of our people around Australia were keen to make a difference and nominated an organisation close to their heart for a grant,” Nicky said.
Motion By The Ocean was nominated by Karen Lamb of WA Transport.
The People of Post grants have been featured by older Australians’ publication The Senior.
