The Jalopy Derby supporting Rural Aid

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 take in some of the outback’s most iconic landmarks, as well as giving you fascinating insights into the rural areas and the unique challenges they face.

Rural Aid was founded in 2015 to provide a holistic support program to rural Australia. The starting point for the charity was the success of the Buy a Bale campaign, which Australians have generously donated to allowing the distribution of fodder, hampers and more. Rural Aid understand the needs of our primary producers and aim to lend a helping hand when times are tough.

Recent weather events such as fires and cyclones have meant that there is even more call for Rural Aid services than ever before. Rural Aid have a number of programs designed with rebuilding and repairing in mind. These include the Farm Rescue and Weekend Warriors programs, as well as the Farm Army job board where farmers can find help that they need.
