I am happy to be running my Bikes for Schools program again in 2009 to help local primary schools in
  their fund raising efforts. In 2008 twenty nine schools participated in this venture and were able to
put extra funds towards individual school projects.
This year I am broadening my fund raising support by donating ipods to High Schools within the
Dickson electorate.
