This is the adventures of the 3 Little Pigs and ‘Hamlet’ the 1966 HR Holden and the hot pink themed crew that has raised over $320,000 over the last 23 years in support of the B2B Brydens Variety Bash.
2021 will be the 22nd Year of the Pig with Crew members Sallymae Bailey and Cheryl and Bill Randall. Sadly Brendon Morron is unable to do the Bash this year, but he assures us he will be back.
Sallymae will complete her 20th event. That is a lot of outback, dusty kms.
Bill and Cheryl are no ‘strangers’ to Variety and are avid 4WD Adventurers having done 13 events themselves, and two false starts in 2020/2021 thanks to CoVID. They won 4WD Spirit of the Adventure in 2015 for their outstanding spirit and support of Variety. They have raised a lot of money for Variety and Cheryl is a very good raffle ticket seller. Look out – get cash ready!
BUT both of them did a B2B Bash 2011 Baulkham Hills to Burraneer Bay (Broome) trip. Cheryl came with us ad Nanna Pig and Bill joined Reg in Car 17. Cheryl is not unfamiliar with the pink wig look!
They come from country NSW – Manilla and Yamba most recently and bring with them great driving skills. Plus I bet Bill could fix anything! That will come in handy.
We are so glad they can step up to be crew for 2021.
Variety – the Children’s Charity is dedicated to improving the quality of life for special needs children.
CoVID restrictions meant that the 2020 Variety B2B Bash was unable to be run so we have no fresh statistics. Charities still need your support. Fingers crossed we do this event in August 2021 to keep the support coming in for them.
In 2019 the Variety Bash raised over $1.66 million net and Variety NSW in 2019 granted appeals to children with 200 different conditions and totalling $3,730,000. This money impacted 30,392 children in NSW/ACT.
Since 1985 over $230 million has been raised by Variety Bashers.
These funds are used to:
- Provide grants – practical help to kids and organisations in need – equipment, therapy, technology, programs, supplies and Sunshine Coaches etc.
- Programs that educate and empower kids in need – Variety Kids Choir, Alopecia Camps, Active inclusion sports days etc.
- Heart Scholarships to encourage the talents of kids in need – 73 Heart Scholarships were granted in 2019.
- Experiences to engage and bring joy to kids in need and their families – Musical picnics, Variety Kids Christmas Part and Variety Livvi’s Place play spaces to name a few.
