In August this year Gavin Little and his Car 256, a 1966 HR Holden, is embarking on his sixth straight Variety Bash.
The Bash is Australia's largest motoring event with participants travelling to rural parts of Australia, at the same time raising money for disadvantaged and special needs children. Throughout the Bash, participants visit local towns, stopping into the schools to visit the kids (some schools only having 5 students).
Bashers get to see the smiles of the kids they've helped and provide them with equipment to assist their education or disability. Over $200 million has been raised through the Variety Bash since it started in 1985.
Variety, the Children’s Charity impacted the lives of 135,878 Australian children and the NSW Variety B to B Bash raised over $2,000,000 in 2015.
It costs $8,500 (minimum) to enter a vehicle in the NSW B to B Bash. This money is a donation and therefore is tax deductible. Gavin is looking for new car sponsors this year as he travels from Berowra to Bowen in QLD. The route is as follows;
Day 1. Sun 21st August

Day 2. Monday 22nd August

Donations of any size are much appreciated. Businesses who donate the most sponsorship dollars are allowed the largest advertising space on the car. Sponsors are most welcome to use the car for their own promotion of their business. Car 256 uses social media to promote the trip to achieve maximum exposure and their sponsors and themselves in the local area, and everywhere else they travel. Sydney Chic will also share Gavin's Social Media on our Twitter, Facebook & Instagram and all sponsors will be mentioned on any posts Sydney Chic creates about the journey.
