On the 25th of April Brett Pollock and his team will begin The Slow Drive in an A Model Ford across Australia to raise funds for the Royal Flying Doctors Service and create awareness of outback tourism.
The drive will start in Gladstone, Qld and finish in Perth, WA. Brett purchased the A model (pictured left) earlier in the year from Graham Wilson in Gladstone who has restored and looked after the car for many years. Brett has been on the look out for an A model for some time as it was the first car owned and driven around Wooleen Station in 1928.
The trip is 4700 kilometres through outback regions and will hopefully be completed in 14 days. Working with Dessert Knowledge Brett hopes to promote outback travel – If he can do it in an 80 year old car, SO CAN YOU!
The trip is dedicated to the RFDS and all the help and support they give to saving lives everyday. You can donate to the cause online or if your lucky enough to see Brett on the road you can donate then. You never know when you may need their help!
So visit The Slow Drive and support a great and exciting cause. You may even see the car at Wooleen one day soon!
