Eureka Brands supports The Squeaky Wheel
The Squeaky Wheel continues to do great things with its range of partners to deliver bicycle-inspired programs for refugees, women and kids. Nutcase Helmets, through its Australian distributor Eureka Brands, have been proud to support these programs for the past several years.
On May 17th, the Wheelie Good Day was held and the City of Melbourne hosted a community bike day in North Melbourne. Similar to the Sydney Rides Festival and WOOP festival we supported in the past, a whole lot of activities centred around Melrose St Village where The Squeaky Wheel has organised an afternoon of fun, dress-ups, ice-cream, bike tours, training and workshops.
The services included Roll Up Valet Parking for your bike, Wheelie Workshops, face-painting and the chance to capture it all at the Treadlie Magazine Photo Booth. The Squeaky Wheel will be ran bike tours and Good Cycles did free bike tune-ups. See more photos here
In November 2014 and February 2015, The Squeaky Wheel held another round of the Good Wheel Project with Good Cycles and supported by the City of Melbourne. The first group worked with a group of students from the St Joseph's Flexible Learning Centre in North Melbourne.
The City of Melbourne has made an video about the Good Wheel program:
The students from St Josephs participated in a 5 session program, focused on teaching bike maintenance, road rules and city riding experience. All 11 students graduated from the course - top marks for all!
Aspects of the program were integrated into the student's VCAL accreditation, making it a truly meaningful and fun program for them and made possible with support from Eureka in the form of Nutcase Helmets, as well as the Huddle Learning Centre and Knog.
Also during 2015 was the Good Wheel Spokeswoman project also supported by Eureka and Nutcase - take a look at the news clipping below.
