COAST TO COAST FOR THE HOMELESS

How can we break the cycle of homelessness? We’re going to help make a difference by breaking cycles of a different kind as we undertake a 4,000km, transcontinental bicycle journey from Perth to Tathra!

Our riders – Malcolm Leslie together with brothers Johnathan and Gavin Drury – are setting out on this epic 4-week ride to raise awareness for homelessness and to support a new program – Recipe for Success – being launched by The Early Morning Centre in Canberra.

A PLACE FOR THOSE IN NEED

The Early Morning Centre is a wonderful charitable organisation dedicated to helping people who are experiencing homelessness or social isolation. Five days a week the Centre provides free breakfast to Canberra’s homeless or vulnerable. It also acts as a community hub, providing showers, laundry facilities, computer access, medical help, and much, much more.

RECIPE FOR SUCCESS

This unique program will provide fortnightly, hands-on cooking workshops for low-income Early Morning Centre guests. The workshops will teach cooking skills, budgeting for food and a better understanding of nutrition. At the same time, it will provide vital social interaction – a key factor in helping people escape the cycle of homelessness.

A recipe book will be compiled at the completion of the project that will include recipes used, information on nutrition and photos and quotes from guests who have participated in the workshops.

While the EMC receives some ACT Government funding, they still rely heavily on volunteers and financial support from the community. So please get behind this fantastic cause and support our cycle-breaking boys as they ride from coast to coast for the homeless.

Thanks to everyone who has generously donated to BTC so far. We have been blown away by the support. We are well on the way to reaching our target and having enough funds to create the Recipe for Success program at the Early Morning Centre.
Below is the route we will be taking. If you are interested you will be able to watch our progress (every 10 mins) via our GPS tracker. We'll post the link before we go.
