Each year Bundaberg Four Wheel Drive Club members choose a charity to donate the funds raised throughout the year to.

Last year’s charity was the Cancer Council of Queensland, due to members being touched with the terrible disease.

Our main fundraising events over the last twelve months have been varied.

Our Ladies Day drive, where club members had the females take the wheel, or if a lady was not driving the male dressed up or was fined for not playing the game.

Fines and a raffle over the day added to the kitty.

We also had our annual fundraising calendar that promotes the club and activities we do, and a raffle run at our Christmas party to add to the total. Our efforts raised $1800.

Our donation contributes to prevent cancers, find more effective treatments, and give the highest level of support to all Queenslanders touched by cancer.

In 2023 over 430 locals from our region alone connected with the 13 11 20 cancer information and support line.

Our donation will also help fund more cancer research than any other independent community-based charity in Queensland! We couldn’t be prouder.

It’s vital that we seek to improve the wellness of our community with early detection and prevention, by making an appointment with their health provider.

Every year, around 1,980 people in the Wide Bay region are diagnosed with cancer.

Around 681 die from the disease. The most common types of cancer in the Wide Bay Burnett region are, in order from the most prominent are Prostate cancer , Melanoma, Bowel cancer, Lung cancer and Female breast cancer.
