A

VARIETY OF SPONSORS FOR A GOOD CAUSE


Date: Friday 13 August 2010

Time: 10am- 12 noon

Where: Renewable Energy/Sustainability Training Centre, Holmesglen Moorabbin Campus, 488

South Rd Moorabbin (outside of Building 4). 


At 10am on Friday 13 August sponsors will gather to celebrate the launch of the 2010 Variety Club

Bash vehicle entry driven by Paul Hincksman.  Key sponsors include the Electrical Trades Union

(ETU) and Holmesglen. 


The 2010 Variety Bash is an annual fundraising motoring event which travels through some of the

most beautiful parts of Australia to raise awareness and funds for the children’s charity Variety.

The 11 day adventure begins in Sydney and travels through NSW to Cobar, Bourke, Moree,

Toowoomba and concludes in the beach side town of Byron Bay.

 

Variety the children's charity (NSW) is dedicated to transforming the lives of children with special

needs by providing opportunities to increase their quality of life and fulfil their potential.

Paul Hincksman, owner and driver of the EH Holden, has driven in the Variety Bash for three years

now. “The reason we keep entering the bash is to assist Variety in the fantastic work they do for

under privileged, handicapped and special needs kids…without our help, they would not

experience the things in life that we take for granted” he said.


The motif of the entered vehicle is No Jobs on a Dead Planet. The vehicle, a 1964 EH Holden, will

have solar panels on the boot and bonnet and a theatrical wind turbine on the roof. “This year we

have gone for a new theme to try and be a bit more environmental” says Paul Hincksman. But in

line with the objective of Variety for the event to be a fun for all the car will also have flags, stickers

and hand outs for the kids such as balls donated from Holmesglen and T-Shirts from ETU. 


The launch will take place at Holmesglen’s Moorabbin campus at its Renewable

Energy/Sustainability Training Centre. The centre was constructed especially for energy efficiency

and renewable energy training.

The launch also acknowledges the strategic partnerships set up to deliver the Global Green

Electrician TM and Certificate IV in Electrical – Photovoltaic Systems as one complete training

package. 


“It’s important for the community that we train current practicing electricians to advise consumers

on how to reduce energy and become truly energy efficient” said Scott Bury, Associate Director,

Centre for Applied Technology.


As part of this complete training program, students and qualified electrical contractors exit with a

qualification in Certificate IV Electrical (Photovoltaic Systems), as well as extensive knowledge on

energy efficiency. As a result they can provide a broad range of current advice to energy

consumers.
