Our friend and work colleague has had his only means of transport stolen.

Pensioner - stolen e-bike which is only means of travel since suffering a stroke and we really need the community's help.


Yesterday, on the 12th of November around 2:30pm someone stole an e-bike owned by Singam that was parked at our Radio Station's front door. He is elderly and since his stroke this is (was) his only means of transport to do his weekly radio show.

The police have been contacted and a complaint filed but the likelihood of this being found is doubtful. We would love the opportunity to get him a new/secondhand e-bike.

Posted by: Jo Holsted

A kind person has donated his old e-bike to be delivered next week so we are holding off on the fundraising, thank you to all who have shared, contributed and shown love to our friend.

The money raised so far will likely be used to get the second hand bike up to scratch, new tyres battery etc and helmet.

We have capped the amount accordingly
