The annual Ladies Day Drive was run by the Bundaberg Four Wheel Drive Club recently, with those without a lady dressing up to play their part.
If you didn’t have a lady driver, you were fined, unless the male driver wore female apparel.
Some members donned dresses to add to the day’s entertainment.
The outing is a fun family day out and about, with fines being given for any indiscretions.
Any money raised on the day is donated to a charity which our club nominates each year.
The beneficiary of our fundraising efforts will be the Open Door Support Services.
Open Door Support Services is a Bundaberg Region based organisation that provides a range of personalised services to enable peoples recovery.
They specialise in NDIS mental health support, suicide prevention and postvention support including training and community awareness.
Open Door Support Services support people on a one to one therapeutic basis, peer support, families, group dynamics, and offer specialist workshops for staff and organisations.
Open Door Support Services support other community organisations and are proud members of Bundaberg Headspace Consortia, and the Bundaberg Regional Suicide Prevention Network.
Our convoy of 18 vehicles headed out, traversing through the Littabella National Park.
The tracks had some testing sections which gave the ladies, that rarely drive, the added confidence to tackle terrains they would normally be in the passenger’s seat for.
Vehicles were put through their paces, some making it more easily than others.
A stop at the Yandaran Hotel for lunch had tongues wagging when some questionable fashion choices entered.
Some banter from the patrons was had and in the spirit of the day well received, complementing us on our fundraising efforts.
At the end of the trip the group commented on how good the day had panned out.
Prizes donated by ARB, Autobarn, Opposite Lock and TJM were given out with Lionel Smith taking out the “Best Dressed” and Adrian Letchford being crowned “Runners Up”.
At the end of the day though the main winner was the Open Door Support Services, with just over $300 raised on the outing.
This amount will be added to our other fundraising venture, our 2023 Calendar, which showcases trips and members vehicles out and about, and are on sale from the club now.
