About Us

The Almost Complete and Utter History of The Bikers Hand.  

The Bikers Hand journey began in 2015, born from a simple yet powerful idea – to make a difference in the lives of those who need it most. It all started with a shared passion for charity rides and a deep commitment to helping the homeless and individuals in need.

In 2016, our mission gained further momentum when the son of Tony Davis (our current President) initiated a homeless meal service at Wentworth Park in Sydney. Both Tony and his wife Mechelle lent a hand, and it quickly became evident that this service was sustained solely through the goodwill of their family and friends, with no support from other food relief agencies, grants, or donations.

Over the years, we continued to contribute to various charity meal services alongside our fellow motorcycle enthusiasts. However, it was in 2018 that a pivotal moment occurred. A group of like-minded individuals came together, and we collectively realised the need for an organisation dedicated to supporting smaller charities that were tirelessly helping people in need, often at their own expense. It was from this moment of unity and purpose that The Bikers Hand was conceived.

Since then, we have evolved into an organisation that extends its hand to any charity in need. Currently, we proudly support over 30 charities and schools, engaging in a wide array of initiatives, from breakfast programs to homeless support and domestic violence assistance.

Our commitment to making a difference goes beyond words. It’s exemplified by our presence and impact in New South Wales. We have provided food, drink, clothing, toys, household necessities, and personal products to over 30 charities and organisations. With distribution hubs both in Sydney and on the Central Coast, we are better positioned than ever to serve those in need.

None of this would be possible without the incredible support of our partners, whose generosity and ongoing contributions enable us to touch the lives of so many. From financial donations to items we can share with smaller charity groups, to the organisation of fundraising events and informative gatherings, our partners are the pillars upon which our mission stands strong.

We believe in fostering a sense of community and involvement, and throughout the year, we host bike runs and events that not only boost our warehouse stock but also uplift the spirits of our supporters. Our annual Christmas Toy Run, in particular, has become a cherished tradition, brightening the holiday season for children and families facing tough times.

But our compassion extends beyond people; we also stand with animals in need. We proudly support animal shelters and community groups that tirelessly work to rescue, care for, and re-home animals, enriching the lives of both the creatures and the individuals who find solace in their company.

At The Bikers Hand, we are more than a charity; we are a community of compassionate individuals, making a positive impact one hand at a time. Join us in our journey to create a better world for all.
