He was recognized in 1993 and 2000 with a Best Supporter of the Bash Award.
In 2009 he joined the Variety 4WD Challenge as an entrant and from 2011 onwards has also been a silver event sponsor.
In 2015 he went for the Trifecta and signed as a silver sponsor of the Variety V2 Motorcycle Run.
He was the major sponsor of the Variety Family Christmas Picnic, a sponsor of the Variety Foundation House has donated thousands of dollars of wardrobes for auction.
