Help sought for Variety Club Bash
Friday 9 Aug 2019
It’s the largest and longest running Australian charity motoring event! They say that the Variety Bash is often imitated, but never bettered! It’s not a race or a rally, it’s a fun and social motoring event. In the words of the original “Basher” Dick Smith, it’s ‘a drive in the outback with a few mates’.
So, Lance is driving with two others from Albert Park pit lane in Melbourne to Geraldton in Western Australia, some 5,000kms+ across Australia in a 1971 Holden HG Wagon. It starts on 20 August. Throughout the event, which is meant to last 10 days, they’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.
Many Sawmills and suppliers to the timber industry have already donated, and the team has already raised over AU$12,000. Lance is now calling on the industry to help support the drive, the cause and Lance and his team of three on the drive across the country. They’d like to use their car as a showcase for our industry.

Let’s hope the Holden makes it! You can follow their progress on Facebook (like their page….The Dukes of Essex). Good luck.
