Supporting Blinky Bill

The RC Karrinyup this week gave a substantial donation in support of Blinky Bill - Car #96 in the Variety Bash 2021 to be held in August in the Pilbara. Blinky Bill is driven by local youth Ethan, along with his mum Jennifer as navigator. Our club was impressed to see a young person from our area fundraising for such a great cause. Started by Dick Smith in 1985, the Bash raises funds for the Children's Charity, Variety. To date, over $23 million has been raised for sick and disadvantaged kids around Australia. It is not a race or a rally, rather in Dick Smith's words, "a drive in the outback with a few mates" in cars that are 25 years or older, which have been done up in a fun theme.

Support for Socks in the City

Homeless people struggle to find clean dry socks to wear. As a result they can develop trench foot and other problems. The best treatment is prevention and the best prevention is to wear clean dry socks. Inspired by a presentation at the recent Joint Bi District Conference, RC Karrinyup member Sandra McGuire initiated a drive to support the Socks in the City project of the RC Heirisson to supply warm socks to homeless people in Perth. Sandra and her team collected both socks and money at club meetings and at the Stirling Farmers Market over several weeks. The results were amazing!
