PCYC Cooktown Braking the Cycle receives new car!

PCYC Cooktown were excited to recently accept our very first dedicated car for PCYC Braking the Cycle, donated generously by major program partner Cooktown Bowls Club.

Cooktown Bowls Club President, Bob Sullivan, officially handed over the new 2017 Kia Cerato to our PCYC Cooktown Branch Manager, Sergeant Howard Pratt, with local police officers, Cook Shire Council representatives, PCYC Queensland Steering Committee members and Cooktown Bowls Club Committee members in attendance to celebrate the donation.

Sergeant Howard Pratt said the donation of the first dedicated car for Braking the Cycle was incredibly appreciated.

“Thanks to the generosity of the Cooktown Bowls Club, PCYC Cooktown can continue to deliver this fantastic and much-needed volunteer mentor and learner driver program to support our young locals,” said Sergeant Pratt.

“This donation is a shining example of community groups working together to improve the lives of young people in our local community,” he said.

“PCYC Cooktown are proud to partner with, and be supported by the Cooktown Bowls Club, Cook Shire Council and the Queensland Police Service,” he said.

PCYC Braking the Cycle BTC is our state-wide volunteer driver mentor program designed to support learner drivers without access to a supervisor or registered vehicle to complete their logbook hours. The aim of the program is to provide young people with increased employment opportunities, community connection and driver education, and is now available at 42 clubs across Queensland.
