Variety Charity

Our Support

Donnellon’s Body Works are proud to take part in the Variety Bash, Australia's most successful charity motoring event, raising funds for Variety – the Children’s Charity to support children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs. Started by Dick Smith in 1985, last year the Bash raised over $12 million nationally, providing practical and much needed grants for items like modified tricycles, wheelchairs and communication devices for children and organisations across Australia. Donnellon's Body Works have been supporting Variety – the Children’s Charity Bash Car 1717 since 2008 and have raised over $220,000.

Our goal is always to focus on raising as much as possible so we can give more to this fantastic charity that is so close to our hearts. You can help us achieve this ambition by supporting our team in the 2013 Variety Bash. All donations above $500 will be acknowledged with a plaque for you to proudly display to your family, friends, company and the wider community.

About Variety

Variety Australia

Children growing up with disability, serious illness or disadvantage need help from a special charity.

That charity is Variety – the Children’s Charity.

Variety works with individual families and organisations to deliver three core programs that help children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs to live, laugh and learn.

Our Freedom Program provides mobility equipment, such as wheelchairs, bikes, walkers, Liberty Swings and Sunshine Coaches so children can get out and about.

Our Caring for Kids Program provides essential medical equipment to help parents care for their seriously ill child at home and in hospital.

Our Future Kids Program provides children with intellectual or physical disabilities the equipment to assist with learning difficulties.

With no government funding, it is through the generosity of the community that enables Variety to improve the quality of life of 250,000 children a year.

Variety is a national and worldwide charity that first began in Australia in 1975. In 2012, Variety provided more than $13 million in grants to Australian children, improving their quality of life.
