  • Cancellation of the Blanket Run

    It is with great trepidation that the MRA ACT have had to cancel the 2020 Blanket Run. This decision has not been made lightly.

    With the federal and local government’s responses to COVID-19, we would be in breach of group gathering and social isolation rules, and we would be taking unnecessary risks with your health.

    Despite all of this, winter doesn’t go away just because this coronavirus is here, and the homeless and disadvantaged still need your help! If you have already stocked up on blankets for donation, please contact your local Salvation Army depot to discuss safe drop-off.

    The Salvation Army would however prefer financial support for this coming winter, as it could be much worse compared to previous years, with more people made homeless with the forecast economic impact. If you can, please see if you can budget a donation.

  • Passing of Greg Williams

    It is with great sadness that I announce to all our supporters of the MRA ACT, that Mr Greg Williams has recently passed away.

    Our condolences go to Greg’s family and friends. Greg was a valued friend and ardent supporter of the MRA’s Toy and Blanket Run’s. Greg supplied each event with all our sound requirements and has done so for more than a decade.

    He will be sorely missed by many, we were all honoured to know him.

  • Motorcycle Safety with Regard to Light Rail Construction Process

    The following article, released in the Canberra Times on 27 April, highlights issues raised by the public regarding the light rail works’ ‘level crossings’ and if they are indeed appropriately safe, for all motor and on-road vehicles.

    Have you encountered any such unsafe situations, specifically on a motorcycle, or witnessed anything? If so, feel free to let the committee know as we can build a body of evidence and engage the ACT government regarding the matter.
