Riding on the back of a Harley Davidson isn’t the first thing that comes to mind in the day of an 86-year-old resident living within an independent living village.
However, Ms Marion Anderson has taken the opportunity.
As part of Peninsula Village’s extra-curricular activities in October, Ms Anderson attended a high tea at Ettalong, held by the Rotary Club of Woy Woy.
The event was held to raise funds for Lift the Lid, Australian Rotary Health’s annual fundraising event for mental health research.
Ms Anderson was winner of one of the major raffle prizes, a ride with the Ulysses Club, the largest social club in Australia for motorcycle enthusiasts.
“I was very happy to be a part of Rotary Club of Woy Woy’s high tea event, raising money and awareness for an important cause,” said Ms Anderson.
“Mental health is important to residents and the wider community.
“While it was a huge surprise that I won the prize and had a very nervous morning to get prepared for the ride, I cannot believe how much I enjoyed it,” Ms Anderson said.
“To feel the wind in my hair and enjoy a ride around the Peninsula was a truly memorable experience that I will continue to tell the tale of for many years to come,” Ms Anderson said.
