Change of Number
We originally signed up as car 777 but unfortunately had to change to
CAR 555 as you can see by the signage on the car.
Car Decoration Stage 1
Have received car back from mechanic, been down to the workshop to get the car approved and have commenced stage 1 of decorations.
Have added stickers for all Variety sponsors and also have started the gold trim.
Waiting for all stickers and other decorations to arrive.
Not long to go now
Car 777 - Jims Gold Wagon
This is the vehicle we have purchased BEFORE its Bash Makeover. It is now in the workshop being worked on to prepare it for our Bash adventure. Then once the mechanic is finished with all its required modifications it will be ready to be decorated. Once completed we will post the AFTER photo. Can't wait to decorate it!!!!!!!
Gold Digger Sisters - Travelling in Jims Gold Wagon
Since our disasterous trip to Birdsville Races in 2016 we have been looking for a new challenge. Obviously raising money for a great charity is important. Also though the 2019 Bash to Geraldton ticks a number of things for both of us.
1. Chance to cross the Nullabor with a group and with support.
2. Visiting the Western goldfields often frequented by Jim (who will be with us in spirit )
3. Another great outback adventure to add to our list already completed.
4. A trip with a difference.
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 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!
Goal! Ten donations received for kids in need!
$500 will supply an iPad for a non-verbal child
$1,000 will supply a specialised trampoline for children with sensory needs
$3,000 buys a portable scooter for a child with limited mobility
Oh wow $10,000 for kids in need. You are champs!!
