Clean­ing up for Va­ri­ety

Pilbara News - - Pilibra Business -

Va­ri­ety Thrifty and AUS Me­chan­i­cal Ser­vices raised $2000 for Va­ri­ety at a car wash in Onslow last month.

The car wash was held to help raise money on be­half of Onslow res­i­dent Bruce Stra­han, who will take part in this year’s Va­ri­ety WA Di­a­monds and Pearls Bash from Ku­nunurra to Broome.

The Onslow com­mu­nity rose to the oc­ca­sion and more than 50 ve­hi­cles lined up at the Beadon Creek Road site to be cleaned de­spite cy­clone Stan loom­ing off the coast.

“The $2000 will be put to­wards mak­ing life a lit­tle hap­pier for some chil­dren,” Mr Stra­han said.

Funds raised by Di­a­monds and Pearls Bash par­tic­i­pants will help to pro­vide prac­ti­cal equip­ment, pro­grams and ex­pe­ri­ences to em­power WA chil­dren, who are sick, dis­ad­van­taged or have spe­cial needs, to live, laugh and learn.
