NSW Variety Bash 2014
John and his wife Meg are long time participants in the NSW Variety Bash, raising money for special needs children in Australia. This year Meg and John have set themselves a target to raise $50,000 for Variety.

Variety logo The NSW Variety Bash is Australia's largest (and most popular) motoring event, having raised more than $173 million since the first one (the inspiration of Dick Smith) in 1985. More than 110 old cars take part in the NSW Bash each year, travelling to remote parts of this vast country over rough and dusty roads, for about ten days, visiting schools and kids at every stage along the way. Bashers 'drive the miles for the smiles'. They see first hand how the money they have raised in advance is used to assist remote schools, children's units of hospitals and individual children by providing much needed equipment to improve the quality of their education and their lives.

Meg and John are passionate about Variety. This year will be Meg's 14th Bash and John's 6th Bash. John recently was awarded the 2014 Variety Australia Heart Award as a Variety Ambassador. Meg and John are well on the way to achieving their goal, having already raised about $40,000 this time around but you could help them by logging into https://2014varietynswbash.everydayhero.com/au/true-blue and donating to their Bash car fundraising. All money raised goes to Variety the Children's Charity. Donate over $100 and your name will be proudly added to their Bash car. You'll be able to follow their journey along the way on this website, after they leave on 7th August 2014.
