Outback adventure just days away
The fundraising is over and now Tony Looker and Liz Looker are preparing to head to Broken Hill where they will begin the 2019 Drover’s Run Outback Adventure, raising money for the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
The couple held their final fundraising event at the Royal Hotel last week, adding another $2500 to their total from a wood raffle and auctions. To date, they have raised close to $10,000 which will go to this great cause.
They would like to thank everyone who has supported them so far and also all the local businesses for their donations. A big thank you to Woolworths and The Meating Place for donating sausages, Paul for cooking the BBQ, Col Stanley at Guyra Hot Bread Shop for donating bread and Alf Looker for cutting wood for the raffle. They also appreciated the support from the Royal Hotel for allowing them to use their venue and auctioneers Michael Jackson, Wayne Jenkyn and Terry Williams.
The 15-day outback adventure takes drivers through some of Australia’s most stunning country beginning on Sunday, August 4th. The event will start with a farewell dinner in Broken Hill. The almost 3700km journey travels through the Flinders Ranges, across the Simpson Desert to Big Red and into Birdsville before it returns to Tamworth.
All proceeds from this event go to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service, to ensure that no-one ever has to pay to be assisted. You can still support Tony and Liz by donating online droversrun2019.gofundraise.com.au/page/TonyLooker9
