The Sheen Panel Service team have been part of this record breaking fundraising number. "It was an outstanding combined effort of 345 entrants and officials, across 94 Variety Bash Cars, 20 official vehicles and 20 rookie crews," said Sheen Group's James Black Thanks to support from their families, friends, colleagues, sponsors and generous strangers, this colourful crew have smashed last year's total by more than $100,000."
"The Variety Vic Bash truly is an event like no other. This year, we travelled from Melbourne to Geraldton, crossing the Nullarbor, venturing through three states and seeing some of Australia's most remote and beautiful locations. We were showered with kindness and support from locals along the way and this year we’re extremely proud to have issued over $50,000 in grants to Aussie kids. In 2019 our Bash Grants saw Variety funding an assistance dog, speech and safety enabling devices, equipment for a blind gymnastics program, learning resources, upgrades to an outdoor learning area, educational and sports equipment and contributing to a dedicated reading area to support special and sensory needs students.
"This year saw car 50, run by the Sheen Panel Service crew raise a whopping $402,000 for Variety and was awarded as the highest fundraiser for yet another year. Breaking our 10 day journey into three sperate legs, it allowed eight Sheen Panel Service team members to be involved. They were able to experience firsthand the impact our fundraising has on communities. We are continually blown away by the generosity of our supporters and couldn’t do it without them."
