WHEN Black Dog Ride founder Steve Andrews was looking for a new trailer to transport bikes, he was generously offered support from five masonic lodges in the South West.
While making a presentation about the men’s health charity, he spoke with Naturaliste lodge member Les James who was willing to help get the materials required.
Enter Wellington lodge member Peter Druskovich who works as a guard at Bunbury Regional Prison.
Mr Druskovich arranged for inmates to build the trailer in the workshop as a way of giving back to the community.
Mr Andrews said he was very grateful for the donation.
“This trailer is the biggest asset Black Dog Ride has now and it will make a big difference,” he said.
Prison superintendent Kerri Bishop said it was great for the male prison to support a charity which promotes men’s health.
“It is very relevant for the men in this prison to support this charity and anything we can do for men and men’s health is great,” she said.
The donation coincides with national men’s health week which celebrates male achievements and wellbeing.
