Pollie Pedal

Bear Cottage is thrilled that Tony Abbott has once again announced that Bear Cottage will be his local charity to support during the 2016 Pollie Pedal event.

Tony Abbott co-founded Pollie Pedal back in 1998. This is a national event and each year a national charity is chosen as the main recipient of the fundraising. This year the national charity will be Carers Australia. As well as the national organisation, Prime Minister Abbott also chooses a local charity to personally fundraise for, which is Bear Cottage.

Since the event started, Pollie Pedal riders have ridden more than 17,500km raising money for a number of charities. This year the Pollie Pedal will see riders travelling through a number of regional areas in New South Wales during the course of the ride. It will provide a wonderful opportunity for riders to raise awareness of and funds for Bear Cottage Children's Hospice.
