Volunteer bike mechanics needed in North Melbourne for fixing donated bikes to give to recently arrived/released refugees, I’d imagine they’re happy with anyone with a basic level of bike mechanic’ry (i still get a bit lost down there in derailleurville but im gonna try and help anyway).
Heres the vibe of the thing from Red Cross
"Use your maintenance skills to repair and recondition bicycles for clients of our Migration Support Programs.
The Bicycle Program is part of the Red Cross Bridging Support Project in our Migration Support Programs. Volunteers assist in providing practical assistance to asylum seekers who have recently been released from detention, which include material aid, household goods and bicycles.
The Bicycle Program Volunteer recycle, refurbish and recondition donated bicycles which are then provided, free of charge, to asylum seekers who are residing in the community. Each bicycle is packaged with a new helmet, pump and a lock, ensuring that both the rider and the bicycle are as safe as possible.
Our Bicycle Program Volunteers will have basic level of bike maintenance skills and experience. We can provide further training to equip you in this role."
