COVID-19 Update

Unfortunately we will be cancelling this year’s annual Freedom Ride. It’s unfortunate for a whole range of reasons, but we can’t afford to be irresponsible to our community. The Freedom Ride is about bringing hope. Hope for those suffering from homelessness. Hope for those trapped in addictions. If we were to proceed this year we run the risk of it bringing just the opposite, and we are not willing to accept that.

If you have signed up for this year’s ride we will happily count your registration towards our next event. If you would instead like a refund, please email Matthew Devenish at [email protected] with your name and bank details and he will get you sorted.

Finally, if you were considering making a donation towards us please continue to do so! Now more than ever we need your help. Cancelling this event leaves us with the possibility of being short of the funds we need to meet our operational needs. Can you help us to make sure this is not the case? You can still make your tax deductible donations at or at

Thank you for ongoing support of the vital work that we do.
