CBCity supports Variety Bash

CBCity supports Variety Bash Four Canterbury-Bankstown friends have embarked on the ultimate 4,400-kilometre bro-trip, all in the name of charity. No  

Four Canterbury-Bankstown friends have embarked on the ultimate 4,400-kilometre bro-trip, all in the name of charity.

Tom “the mechanic” Dell’aia, Adrian “the electrician” Dell’aia, Rocko “the fixerupperer” Mariani and Nunzio “the cushion-fluffer” Di Rosario, are driving a 40-yearold decommissioned ambulance across two states and a territory, for one of Australia’s biggest charity motoring events.

The 2018 Variety B to B Bash set off from Bonnyrigg on Sunday for a 10-day adventure to Braitling, Northern Territory.

The team’s affectionately named “cushion-fluffer”, Mr Di Rosario, said he was looking forward to bringing their 1975 V8 302 Ford F100 out of hibernation for its second B to B Bash.

“Our car, known as ‘7500’, had been converted by the Ambulance service to be part of the Victorian fleet,” he said.

“It has taken a lot of our hard-earned money to bring it back to roadworthiness and also to Variety’s standards. As it will be driven on unsealed roads, many other safety modifications have also been made.”

Mr Di Rosario and his team is inching towards its $17,000 fundraising target, with the help of a $1,500 donation from the City of Canterbury Bankstown.

“We are very thankful of Council’s support but we are not quite there yet,” he said.

“There is still time to reach our goal and if anybody can be so generous to donate any amount that would be amazing – every single cent counts.”

Mayor Khal Asfour said funds raised during the B to B Bash will be donated to Variety – the Children’s Charity, which helps children that face challenges with disability, chronic illness or financial hardship.

“What I love most about the Bash is that it’s not a race or a rally, it’s just mates going out on an adventure to raise money for children,” Mayor Asfour said.

“Our community has a strong tradition of digging deep to help those in need and I encourage residents to help in any way they can.”
