| ||AWB participating in the Variety Bash|| ||
Australia’s largest wheat company has joined forces with one of the country’s leading banks to raise money for underprivileged kids in this year’s Variety Club Bash.
AWB Limited and ANZ are jointly sponsoring a 1964 EH Holden owned by AWB’s Trade Finance Manager, Terry Aucher. Painted gold, with waving fields of wheat, the car features both AWB’s and ANZ’s logos.
Terry, with Albert Burgio of ANZ and Barry Smith have entered the car in this year’s Bash, a 10 day rally from the Albert Park Grand Prix track to the Gold Coast.
The rally will take them through much of the Eastern part of the grain belt and Terry is sure Australian grain growers will give strong support to the Bash.
“We are hoping to raise money so that we can provide under-privileged kids with equipment and services.”
“This is a fun way to raise money for the largest international children’s charity and we are very pleased AWB wanted to be involved,” said Mr Aucher.
The Variety Club is a global children’s charity which gives support to children up to 18 years of age who are mentally, physically and socially disadvantaged.
The Victorian section of the Variety Bash hopes to raise in excess of $500,000 on this years event.
Mr Aucher thanked Cadbury as an additional sponsor of the car.
