What we are asking for and why

In August 2019, we will be taking part in the Jalopy Derby and driving over 2500km from Sydney to Airlie Beach. The route will take us through a number of drought, flood and fire affected communities in NSW and QLD along the way. We will have the opportunity to assist the locals with repairs and maintenance to their properties and communities.

We have been donated an AU Falcon for the derby which will take us across the two states.

We are raising money on behalf of Rural Aid, the official charity of the Jalopy Derby, who support struggling families and businesses in rural Australia. All donations are going to the charity, as all vehicle costs are covered by the teams themselves.

Our farmers and rural communities are in dire need of support, so please if you can spare a few dollars for this great cause, hopefully we can help some struggling Australians.

Thank you

What the charity is asking for and why

The Jalopy Derby is a 7 night, 8 day car rally across rural outback Australia, primarily on unsealed roads, providing participants with an opportunity to experience this amazing country, build life long friendships, foster comradeship and an ethos of helping others and simply celebrating life itself.

However, we’re a rally with a real difference . . . We won’t be rushing from one overnight stop to another, trying to cover as many kilometres as possible and missing the unique environment we’re driving through. On the contrary, our derby goes out of its way to give you fascinating insights into the regions and the challenges they face.

From the ‘Buy a Bale campaign’, where Australians have generously donated to enable the distribution of fodder, food hampers and more, to the programs designed to help farmers rebuild and repair vital infrastructure, Rural Aid aims to provide a holistic support program to rural Australia.

Our mission is to raise as much money as possible for the drought affected rural communities across Australia, supported by Rural Aid.
