Car 95 - Surfing Safari

Car 95


We're taking part in the 2019 Variety Bash to help kids in need

We're back again and in our very own car, the fabulous Car 95 "Surfing Safari", a classic 1968 VW Beetle with a Californian BAJA twist!

Steven Chaur and Chris Freel are excited to team up again in this year’s Variety Bash after a successful trip up through the middle of Australia from Melbourne to Townsville in 2018, driving over 4,200km and raising needed funds for Variety and Aussie kids in need!

This year we are travelling all the way from Melbourne (Victoria) to Geraldton (West Australia) – and we are going the long way round! 

Throughout the event, we’ll be visiting local towns, stopping into schools and organisations to help kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs through the provision of educational, health and mobility equipment. And the giving doesn’t stop there! Variety continue to support children, families and communities throughout the year with funds raised from the Variety Bash.

Help us give Aussie kids a fair go – please help us achieve our target and donate generously today! Any and all donations are welcome.

Corporate sponsorships are available for prominent car signage, so please contact either Steve or Chris.

My Achievements

Goal! Ten donations received for kids in need!

$1,000 will supply a specialised trampoline for children with sensory needs

Oh wow $10,000 for kids in need. You are champs!!
