Va­ri­ety Bash rolls into town

Chinchilla News - - LIFE - PHO­TOS: NATASHA GIB­SON

MORE than 100 decked-out cars with 350 peo­ple on board cruised through Chin­chilla last week, with plenty of fun and cheer af­ter trav­el­ling more than 3000km to raise funds for chil­dren in need.

The 114 themed cars and their larger-than-life crews stayed in town for a rest stop at Chin­chilla Show­grounds overnight be­fore head­ing off to­wards Nindigully last Thurs­day morn­ing. Themes such as The Simp­sons, James Bond, Rocky Hor­ror, Min­ions, Where’s Wally, Scooby Doo and Dr Seuss char­ac­ters meant there was some­thing for both young and old lo­cals to see.

The 10-day Va­ri­ety Bash is de­signed to help un­der priv­i­leged, dis­ad­van­taged and special needs chil­dren through­out Queens­land and is Aus­tralia’s largest and longest run­ning char­ity mo­tor­ing event.

Since its in­au­gu­ral event, the Va­ri­ety Bash has raised over $220 mil­lion right around the coun­try for Aussie kids in need.
