Victoria fires: the children of Kinglake

Kids’ recovery moves up a gear

 

THE children of Kinglake are back on their bikes, thanks to local benefactors.

Army officers handed out free bicycles to more than 150 children last night at the Kinglake community centre to kick off a party for bushfire survivors in the devastated town.

There were bicycles in four different sizes from Goldcross Cycles so that every child who lost a bike in the blaze that ripped through their town on Black Saturday had a replacement.

Parents had put their children’s names down at community meetings to secure a set of wheels for their youngsters.
