What we are asking for and why

Dave and I both grew up on the land and are very aware of the daily struggles faced by farmers. We have volunteered for various service clubs for many years but are looking for ways we can assist other communities. So when we heard about the Rural Aid Jalopy Derby we thought it was a great way to raise money for, and also assist a number of rural communities. Our farmers and rural communities support us every day by providing us with food for our tables. Let us do the same for them!
We are very keen to maximimise this opportunity so would be very grateful for your donation.

What the charity is asking for and why

The Jalopy Derby is a 6 night, 7 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.
