The Roadies

The Roadies are back for some exciting events in 2021!
Jodie the Roadie, Pete on the Street,
Switched On Sharon & Disk Brake Dom. 

On Monday 19th April– The Roadies are having a Rostered Day Off!

Buddy Blankets
The Roadies are partnering with the Crisp Packet Project Adelaide SA to make survival sheets for the homeless this Winter and need your help.
Keep your empty Chip packets! Any packet that has a silver lining reflects body heat. Once opened up, washed and ironed together they make a warm waterproof  blanket that’s easily folded to carry.
All Buddy Blankets made will be donated to the Salvation Army.
Drop off your empty chip packets to The Roadies each Monday,
or at 1079 Life- 3 Lumiere Lane. Hendon
or post them to 1079 Life: PO Box 1079 West Lakes SA 5021

In the meantime keep collecting your bread tags! (more info below)


Wheelchair Number 17 & 18!

We have received photos of the latest two wheelchairs your bread tag recycling has funded through our partnership with Aussie Bread Tags for Wheelchairs. We were able to help Mr Annandale at Lake Farm home for intellectually disabled adults in Port Elizabeth and also provide a wheelchair to a funeral home in Vredendal to enable the frail to attend funerals

Together we have changed a life for someone in need through our partnership with Aussie Bread Tags for Wheelchairs.
*Keep collecting  your bread tags!

To help reduce waste and be environmentally friendly bring your bread tags along in paper bags, cardboard boxes or other materials that can be recycled to the station or to any of the various locations listed below.
