Community transport not-for-profit organisation Stryder received a federal volunteer grant of $5,000 recently to assist in driver training and fuel reimbursements for their volunteers.
Federal Member for Bennelong John Alexander OAM MP visited their headquarters at Gladesville to congratulate them and inspect their fleet.
“Stryder provide critical transport services for those who are less mobile than most, especially the elderly and disabled. I’m delighted they were able to access this grant to assist them in supporting their valuable volunteer drivers,” Mr Alexander said.
“I’d also like to thank their volunteers on behalf of the community, we are extremely lucky to have you helping those in need. If anyone is thinking of volunteering, Stryder certainly would be a fine and worthy consideration.
“While the amount may seem modest, I have been advised that it will go a long way, a testament to the efficiency of Stryder’s management.”
If people are in need of transport assistance, or interested in volunteering, Stryder can be contacted at stryder.org.au, or 9816 5000.
