Twenty-four Lower Hutt students are the proud owners of brand new bikes, thanks to Variety – the Children’s Charity and Dimension Data.
A key supporter of Variety’s Bikes for Kids programme, Dimension Data also presented the host school, Randwick School, with a further six bikes for use on its new bike track.
The students who received bikes were from Randwick School, Wilford School and Our Lady of the Rosary School and were nominated by people in the community, such as their teachers, who outlined reasons why they deserve a bike.
Dimension Data New Zealand is delighted to be partnering with Variety to provide bikes to Kiwi kids, says Diljit Bolla.
“A bike to a Kiwi child can mean so much, a rite of passage to limitless fun and adventure. As an organisation we feel privileged to be part of this initiative, to be giving bikes and an opportunity that every growing child deserves.”
The presentation was MC’d by Variety ambassador Mark Wright.
Through its Bikes for Kids programme, Variety provides hundreds of deserving or disadvantaged Kiwi kids with bikes each year.
$200 provides a Kiwi kid with their very own bike and helmet.
