Va­ri­ety is hold­ing its 30th Bash dur­ing Au­gust, with the or­gan­is­ers say­ing the spirit of the oc­ca­sion has not changed.

THE 30th Va­ri­ety Bash for chil­dren in need will take to the road this month in time-hon­oured tra­di­tion.

Char­ity boss Travis Clark said the spirit of the event had changed lit­tle since the first WA run.

“There are cer­tain things we do that peo­ple ex­pect to be done; like go­ing to schools and places you wouldn’t nec­es­sar­ily get to go if you weren’t part of a big char­ity like ours,” he said.

WA road trip­pers will drive highly-dec­o­rated older cars through the Fer­gu­son Val­ley, Mar­garet River, Den­mark and Pem­ber­ton re­gions for a week to raise money for the chil­dren’s char­ity.

Mr Clark said peo­ple joined in for many rea­sons.

“Some peo­ple like camp­ing,” he said.

“Oth­ers like cars and some peo­ple just like be­ing able to hang out with their mates for a week.”

The con­voy de­parts Bur­swood Park on Au­gust 18.
