Venny Kids get riding with the Bike Hub


Since welcoming with the customers of the Community Bank Flemington just over 12 months ago, it has been our pleasure to learn more about the Kensington, Flemington and Ascot Vale communities.

As part of the commitment to our new customers, the Board of the Community Bank Seddon pledged $100,000 over three years directly to these communities. This has created a wonderful opportunity to engage and learn more about many new and established organisations doing fantastic and inspiring work, only just down the road from Seddon.

One of our most successful collaborations so far, has been to support the Inner West Community Bike Hub partner with The Venny’s “Venny to You” program during the school holidays. The program took 34 bicycles to their pop-up play sessions in North Melbourne & Flemington to facilitate bike riding workshops and we were blown away by the interest and determination shown by children and young people who were keen to learn to ride bikes or sharpen their skills!

A total of 32 children learned to ride a bike from scratch whilst spending time playing and learning basic repair and maintenance skills from super bike mechanic, Glen, from the Bike Hub.
The Venny is just one of several community organisations supporting and inspiring the local community and we look forward to sharing more about their Girls Group+ Program, which we have recently supported. Be inspired by The Venny’s amazing story here
Stayed tuned for more community stories from Flemington, Kensington & Ascot Vale coming soon!
