Getting the wind in our hair!
30 October, 2017

Exciting news to share! Masonic Care Tasmania is thrilled to be part of a global movement that is enabling older members of our community to get out and about…the wind in their hair!

An idea that was born in Denmark, this inspiring initiative has seen six Danish mates cycle more than 2000km from Newcastle to Hobart. Their aim was to raise awareness of this growing movement that is helping to combat loneliness and putting a smile on many faces.

Masonic Care is excited to be part of this movement, and we are delighted to have Tasmania’s first trishaw that is specifically for aged care! We will be able to offer our residents at Freemasons the opportunity to be part of this fun, social and memorable experience.
On Friday 20th October we celebrated the arrival of the team to Hobart at our Freemasons Home in Lindisfarne and our newly purchased trishaw was officially handed over.

Huge thanks to everyone involved in making this happen. It has been a successful collaboration between Masonic Care Tasmania, Team Strib, Cycling Without Age and Rotary Bellerive.

We can’t wait to see how this trishaw will enhance the wellbeing of those who live life with us and our local community.
