Are you enthusiastic about life and want to experience the benefits of exercise, fresh air, sunshine and interaction with friendly residents in a tropical setting whilst volunteering at the same time? The Good Shepherd Home is looking for Trishaw Pilots (riders) for our newest activity. The Trishaw is a powered assist bike with front seating which allows our elderly residents to be taken for a bike ride along the Ross River or Palmetum. Riders will get to experience the smiles and joy of taking our elderly residents for a ride in this vehicle.
We provide training which allows you to ride (pilot) the Trishaw enabling you to begin a journey unlocking timeless stories and wonderful relationships whilst creating lasting memories for your passengers and their families as well as yourself.
The Good Shepherd Home Townsville has a well-deserved reputation for its welcoming environment, attention to detail and homely finishing touches. With a strong emphasis on creating a genuine feeling of warmth and familiarity, The Good Shepherd Home has been delivering exceptional care for almost 50 years and we would love you to join our volunteer team.
Our volunteers are required to undertake a police check and complete training to enable them to carry passengers on pre-assessed routes. Trishaws are great fun to ride and you will only carry passengers when you and your trainer are fully confident you are ready.
