Car 98, countdown to Geraldton

A big thank you to the detailing team at Kilmore Toyota for getting the adhesive off & having Champagne Charlie positively gleaming in preparation for this years stickers!

Team Hoe Down - Melbourne to Geraldton 2019 Variety Bash

Well, only 18 days to go & Car 98 (aka Champagne Charlie) has gone in today for his pre trip check & tune up.

Then a sticker update & we’ll  be good to go!

We’ve also got the good news that our great friend & 3rd driver Jean Giovanni is now able to come with us after it being touch & go for a while...

Will post a couple of photos when stickers are on.

Many thanks again to all our fantastic sponsors who have supported us with this very worthy cause.

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 – our second... travelling all the way from Melbourne Victoria to Geraldton WA – the long way round! 

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.

We found it awe inspiring and emotional to be able to meet the people & families in these communities that our efforts were helping and supporting in some way. It made us feel both thankful for the opportunities that the kids around us have and privileged to meet other amazing kids that are battling with varied disadvantages.

Help us give Aussie kids a fair go – donate today!
