The 2019 Variety NSW Bash heads off from Newcastle on Sunday, with more than 100 colourful Bash teams hitting the dusty roads around regional NSW and ACT to help give Aussie kids a fair go.
The 27th Variety NSW Bash will visit rural and remote schools throughout the state bringing with them technology, sensory equipment and learning resources which will provide opportunities for kids to reach their full potential.
More than $50,000 worth of grants will be donated during the event to help ensure these kids, no matter where they live, don’t miss out.
“All our Bashers have been fundraising and getting their cars ready for the last 12 months and are looking forward to having a memorable week on the Bash. The highlights from the Bash are always meeting the kids we help along the way and seeing their faces light up as they see the cars come into the schools,” Variety – the Children’s Charity NSW/ACT Head of Regional Development, Jason Bourke said.
“We have some very interesting cars all over 30 years old entered this year including an E Type Jaguar, Mark 2 Wolseley, VW Beattle, Bedford Bus, F1000 Troop Carrier, an Austin 1800 and numerous Statesmans, Holden HRs and Mercedes Benz.”
This year’s Variety NSW Bash starts at Foreshore Park Newcastle and will head to Nowra, Moruya, Canberra, Batlow, Wagga Wagga, Carrathool, Wyalong, Binda, Goulbourn and Wollondilly before finishing back for the Variety Family Fun Day at Newcastle Foreshore Park 11am – 3pm Saturday 25th May.
