Car wash for fundrais­ing cause

Pilbara News - - Business - Louise Alling­ham

A char­ity car wash and sausage siz­zle will be held in Onslow on Satur­day, Jan­uary 30, to raise funds for Va­ri­ety WA.

The event will be held from 8am to 11am at the Thrifty truck and car rental yard.

Money raised will go to­wards help­ing lo­cal Onslow res­i­dent Bruce Stra­han par­tic­i­pate in the 2016 Va­ri­ety WA Di­a­monds and Pearls Bash — a fundrais­ing road-trip ad­ven­ture through north­ern WA.

Mr Stra­han will be tak­ing part in The Bash with his wife, Tracey, and friend Natalie Bar­wick for the fifth year in a row.

They will be driv­ing from Ku­nunurra to Broome in their “000” ve­hi­cle in Au­gust.

Each car and team par­tak­ing in The Bash are dressed and dec­o­rated to a nov­elty theme, cre­at­ing quite a spec­ta­cle on the roads.

Pro­ceeds from this year’s Va­ri­ety WA Di­a­monds and Pearls Bash will help Va­ri­ety to aid and em­power sick, spe­cial needs and dis­ad­van­taged WA chil­dren.

Last year, Mr Stra­han and his team raised $45,000 for Va­ri­ety WA and have hopes to beat that this year.
