Australian Health Service Alliance & Health Funds Bash Challenge

We are taking part in the Variety Bash to help kids in need!

G’day! We are so excited to be taking part in the 2021 Variety Bash – travelling all the way from our Head Office in Melbourne to Great Keppel Island, the long way round!

David Nowell and John Robinson, AHSA Project Huxley leaders, along with Scott Ballan and Dale Charlesworth decided to make the best of a difficult lockdown situation by buying a car, putting in some elbow grease to meet event specifications and seizing the opportunity to have some fun, promote AHSA and our health fund partners and supporters to raise money for a very worthwhile cause. 

AHSA is sponsoring this challenge and the car will be branded AHSA along with all AHSA health fund logos (and other supporters) – a healthcare theme with our crew wearing hospital scrubs! 

We will be driving our collective brands right across Australia in this televised event!

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 – donate today! 

My Achievements

Goal! Ten donations received for kids in need!
