What an awesome day!  11 May 2021

Posted by: Westpac Chopper Appeal

Thanks to everyone for your generous donations so far. The 10 year anniversary chopper bike ride was completed in fantastic conditions on Friday 7th May. After riding with 5 riders on our initial ride in 2011 it was amazing to ride into Invercargill on Friday with Sir John Kirwan and three members of the Black Spokes cycling team which included a Tour of Southland winner, World cycling champions and a Junior Olympic Gold medallist. Two of them, Aaron Gate and Campbell Stewart will be at the Olympics in Tokyo. We will keep accepting donations for a few more weeks yet so please keep promoting for this fantastic cause.
