The “MUPP3TZ 106.9 ” NT Variety bash team have once again been busy at work fundraising for Variety NT. We have already registered into this year’s NT Variety bash “Tennant to Townsville” during the 25th August to 1st September
We are seeking donations to assist our variety bash team make a difference to kids in need.
All fundraising and donations will go directly to Variety NT.
Our Bash car is located in Darwin and will be out and about at many events and will also be driven socially. All donations are tax deductible as Variety is a non for profit charitable organization.
Previously I have been involved with Variety NT through my employer, St John Ambulance NT. I have assisted in 3 variety bashes as the bash paramedic, and last year as first time basher. The years have grown on me and I have wanted to do more. I have seen these kids and the smile on their faces when the bash comes to town. I need to make a bigger difference to these kids in need. Together with 4 others we have formed a variety bash team been the “MUPP3TZ”.
We have purchased a 1982 ford Fairlane stretch, which last year ran it’s first bash.
Last year the “MUPP3TZ” raised a total of $12680.70. We were the highest fundraisers for 2017 NT Variety Bash receiving the “Top Hat” award and also the “Spirit of the Bash” award for best overall Bash team for 2017.
All children deserve the same opportunities in life.
All children should be able to follow their dreams and be the best they can be, no matter what life throws at them.
Variety – the Children’s Charity supports children and families who are facing many challenges through sickness, disadvantage or living with a disability.
Our work allows children to gain mobility and freedom, to get out and about in the community, to communicate, achieve independence and increase self-esteem, and where possible, assistance to help them integrate into mainstream school and activities.
The Variety Bash is not a race or a rally, it’s a fun and social event, or in the words of the originator Dick Smith, ‘A drive in the outback with a few mates’ in cars that are at least 30 years old (with an awesome theme!).
The Bash is a once in a lifetime chance to experience remote and regional parts of Australia that you might otherwise not see, all in support of Variety – the Children’s Charity.
Throughout the Bash, participants visit local towns, stopping into schools and organisations to visit the kids. Bashers get to see the direct impact of their fundraising efforts along the way, with a range of educational, health and mobility equipment provided to local schools and organisations en route.
The event is all about having fun in support of Aussie kids. There are always festivities along the way, from theme nights to entertainment and other activities and games on the road.
The Variety Bash generally runs for 8– 10 days depending on where the final destination has been set. The route and destination change each year . The full route is announced at a launch event each year, shortly after the finalisation of the previous Variety Bash.
Without business like yourself, these kids get left behind. Please help us help these kids and give them what they deserve.
