With fires continuing to ravage the state, the Coffs Coast Cyclones BMX Club have done their bit to help the firefighting efforts.
The Cyclones held a charity race day on Sunday with all proceeds going towards the NSW Rural Fire Service.
Sunday’s scheduled event of an inter-club Triple C Challenge between Coffs Coast, Casino, and Clarence Valley BMX clubs had to be postponed due to the Casino club being affected by the bushfires.
This inspired Cyclones club director Rachelle Grant and the club to host their fundraising day for the NSW Rural Fire Service.
“We had to postpone our inter-club challenge, but rather than just cancel it we thought we’d turn it into a fun event and raise money,” she said.
“Casino was meant to come to the meeting but they couldn’t get through due to the fires,
“So we wanted to give back to the firies by donating racing and canteen fees, as well as raffles and individual donations.”
The Cyclones club director was still confident of hosting the Triple C Challenge in the near future.
“We’re hopefully going to host Casino in the coming weeks,” she said.
The Coffs Coast Cyclones will be hosting their end of year presentation and club awards on Saturday, December 6 at Darlington Park.
The new BMX season starts next year at the beginning of Term 1 of the school year.
