IN just two months a convoy of vehicles will combine the fun of driving with a little magic and intrigue when this year’s Goulburn Valley Hospice Rallye leaves Shepparton, heading for Beechworth.
Running on May 5 and 6, the Goulburn Valley Hospice Rallye has proven to be a fun event for all types of vehicles, with past events seeing participants jump in their ‘20s model vehicles, classic VW, Ferrari, Volvo or modern family sedan and travel the round trip over two days.
But this year, there is a little magic in the air, with the rallye’s theme, ‘Magic and Intrigue’ encouraging participants to dress up on the Saturday night in a magic themed outfit where there will also be prizes for the best magic tricks performed on the night.
Goulburn Valley Hospice Rallye chairman, Min Innes-Irons said, “The event is a 600km round trip over the two days and you will travel on sealed roads the whole way, but they may be roads you have never travelled before, which adds to the intrigue and fun of the trip.
“It’s a fun event that helps to raise money for a fantastic cause. Last year we raised $55,000 for Goulburn Valley Hospice Care Services.
“The local hospice is a 24 hour service that relies on funding from external sources to keep the service going.
“We have a new rallye route this year that has been put together by experienced rallye route experts, so it will be something special and unique.
“We encourage rare and interesting vehicles to come along, but you can just jump in the family car and come along.”
