Medibank cycles money into Docklands charity

Medibank cycles money into Docklands charity Image

Local corporate Medibank has put its money where its mouth is, donating $10,000 to Docklands-based not-for-profit Good Cycles.

Based in Village St, Good Cycles offers mobile bike maintenance and repair services, with all profits used to fund support, training and jobs for long-term unemployed Melburnians.

According to Medibank’s head of corporate social responsibility Rita Marigliania, the Good Cycles program was a fantastic initiative and the large contingent of Medibank staff who ride to and from work were encouraged to use the service.

“Through the Medibank Community Fund we have been able to provide some funding to Good Cycles to continue its great work with unemployed young people and others in the community who are homeless or at risk,” Ms Marigliani said.

“Not only is this a great, convenient service we know is helping out those in need, it’s also encouraging people to be active by riding their bikes, and is perfectly aligned to Generation Better and our Better Health message.”

Good Cycles, which is based in the Goods Shed North on Village St, is set to open a second space at the Medibank headquarters, where they will fix bikes onsite.

“The funds will be partly used to fit-out the space that we’re moving into at the Medibank building and also partly to help with the programs we run,” co-founder Luke Wright said.
