Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

A pair of Pil­bara Princesses will make the trek to Broome for the Va­ri­ety Bash next week af­ter many months of prepa­ra­tion.

Driv­ers Kirsten Board­man and Tracey Payne said while their fundrais­ing had wrapped up, they had still been keep­ing busy pay­ing spon­sors back in kind by vol­un­teer­ing their help at events and ac­tiv­i­ties around town.

Ms Board­man said de­spite dif­fi­cult eco­nomic times in Kar­ratha the team had man­aged to outdo their 2015 event fundrais­ing to­tal and were grate­ful for the lo­cal sup­port they had re­ceived.

“The lo­cal clubs have been (great) — with­out them, we wouldn’t have been able to reach our tar­get,” she said.

As the Re­gal Trans­port Kar­ratha De­pot pre­pared to trans­port the bright pink Princess car to Ku­nunurra for free last week, the Princesses said they were look­ing for­ward to fi­nally get­ting on the road for the Bash.

“We’ve been full-on since April and ba­si­cally, the last few months, every week­end we’ve been at a mar­ket or fes­ti­val … so it is quite tir­ing,” Ms Board­man said.

“We are ab­so­lutely knack­ered, so we’re ac­tu­ally look­ing for­ward to hav­ing a break away.”
