Riders to the rescue On the road: The Ulysses Motorcycle Club will be out in force for its annual fundraising ride for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Trust. By MICHELLE ROBINSON Hundreds of bikies are hitting the roads of Auckland for charity this Sunday. Made up of riders aged 40-plus, the Ulysses Motorcycle Club of Auck- land will be out in force for its annual fund- raising ride for the West- pac Rescue Helicopter Trust. Whether it s a nifty 150cc scooter or a grunty 1800cc motorbike, all are welcome to rev their engines from 10am on Sunday. The ride kicks off from the Karaka Bloodstock Centre in Papakura and finishes with a helicopter landing at AUT Univer- sity s Akoranga campus. Spectators are wel- come to find a safe spot and keep an eye out for riders coming up the motorway, committee member Rae Bell says. This will be the 16th fundraiser ride for the Westpac trust, with more than $100,000 having been raised over the years, she says. The money has gone towards night vision goggles, life vests, emergency locators, an ambulance vehicle and a tow tractor. Ulysses clubs through- out the country hold reg- ular charity rides, with Auckland ones attracting up to 1500 bikes, she says. While club members are strictly aged 40-plus, younger riders are wel- come to join the charity ride. Entry is free with donations welcome. To find out more about the club visit www. ulysses.org.nz. Song to help earthquake relief effort A Kiwi musician in Australia has written a song for the Christ- church earthquake relief effort. Emily Williams from Australian Idol, NZ Idol and Young Divas fame and sister of south Auck- land s J Williams, has created a song called Never Alone to help raise money for the Red Cross New Zealand Earthquake Relief Fund. Her song Never Alone is avail- able now for download from iTunes. All proceeds from the song will be donated directly to the Red Cross New Zealand Earthquake Relief Fund.
