Durable, lightweight bikes like the postie are often the only way ChildFund Cambodia staff can access remote villages and help hard-to-reach communities.
“You see how they are used in Cambodia and other places and it’s just unbelievable,” Corey says.
“The amount of gear they can carry and the terrain they cross is pretty incredible.”
Corey and his lifeguard colleagues Andrew “Reidy” Reid and Ryan “Whippet” Clark have teamed up to try to raise enough money to raise $3,500 to for a bike that will be used to deliver life-saving essentials and services to children in Cambodia.
“Every Australian knows the postie bike and it’s great to see the postie bike helping children around the world,” Corey said.
“As soon as we heard about the Post a Postie campaign, we all wanted to get on board and do something to help.”
He said the postie bike was a perfect gift for someone looking to make a lasting impact this Christmas.
“A lot of the time at Christmas you’re looking for gifts that have a little bit more meaning,” he says.
“There’s a lot of excessive around and you don’t want to buy something for someone that’s just going to go to waste.
“The postie bike is perfect because it’s something we all know and love and it will go to a great cause for children overseas.”
