Trillian Trust and the police-partnered youth charity Blue Light have announced they will get behind the annual road-trek non-competitive car rallies that raise funds for disabled and disadvantaged Kiwi kids, and bring fun and entertainment to back-blocks schools each year.
For 26 years called the Variety Bash, the event will now operate under the Trillian Trek banner.
Trillian Trek coordinator Murray O’Donnell says, “We couldn’t run the event without logistical support from generous supporters like Trillian, and we couldn’t reach the most vulnerable children without a charity to manage the logistics and the millions of dollars we raise.
To have Blue Light on board can help us reach the children who truly need our help."
The Police charity is already familiar with the Trek format of non-competitive charity road rallies, as the famous Bryan and Bobby Safety Show has often joined the crews as they reach children in back-country New Zealand.
