Our motivation

In 2015 Variety Tasmania embarked on a wonderful journey of discovery with strategic partner Shiploads. The objective was to work together in devising a community-focused initiative that could not only raise funds for and awareness of Variety Tasmania, but could also inspire the involvement of the entire Shiploads Crew comprising over 300 employees.

No sooner was this complete, the first Fair took place.

Encouraged by the public response through the collection phase, several Shiploads Crew volunteered to help during the Fair and associated suppliers of Shiploads offered their services to transport the goods to and from the venue.

This first event attracted over 3,000 visitors and generated fundraising revenue in excess of $35,000. Since then, two further Fairs have followed bringing the total raised to date to more than $76,000!
