“After the visit, the group was determined to try and raise as much money as they could for this worthwhile cause,” says Adrian.
With the assistance of local rider Sam Muscat, they met up with the local Sunday Riders group and joined their weekly ride. Local members were also invited to join the evening’s festivities and charity auction.
After a ride to Silverton and Mundi Mundi Plains, the group returned to Broken Hill for the Annual Charity Auction and BBQ along with Steve Martin and Larry from the RFDS and Sam and Gerard Southon from the Sunday Riders.
Rally organisers Adrian and Ann Beacham say they are happy with the $1400 raised considering the small number of riders and are looking at options for an annual fundraiser to support the RFDS outside of the rally.
They would also like to acknowledge Liz and Seb from the Gateway Motor Inn, and Rob Barone from Top End Meat for their support of the BBQ and auction.
