Car 69 - The Truckers

I'm taking part in the Variety Bash to help kids in need

G’day! We are so excited to be taking part in this year’s Variety Bash – travelling all the way from Melbourne Victoria to Geraldton WA – the long way round!

The 2019 Car 69 - 'The Truckers' crew includes Tom Pateras, John Christou and John Zausa.

The Variety Bash is a once in a lifetime chance to experience remote and regional parts of Australia in outrageously themed classic cars, all in support of Variety – the Children’s Charity.

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!
