Variety Charity Partner of the Tulip Time Festival

September 17, 2019 by nswadmin

Variety has been chosen as the Charity Partner for Tulip Time Festival 2019, running from 24th September to 7th October. The 2019 festival theme is the magic world of Mary Poppins, as Bowral is where the idea for the character originated from.

Come and say hi at the Variety Marquee during the two weeks of the festival. You’ll be able to grab Variety merchandise and lolly bags, and also learn more about all the ways we help kids in need.

Make sure you have a go at our Catch for a Cause game with fabulous prizes to be won.

You can also catch us at any of these events, as part of the Festival celebrations:
