Minor trip for major funds

SERIAL ADVENTURE fundraisers, Arnold and Avis Eggins (left), embarked on a 15 000km journey around Australia in their 1954 Morris Minor ute on 5 June to raise funds for the Barnabas Community, a ministry of Lifeline Community Care Queensland.

Last year the couple raised more than $4000 for the Barnabas Community by walking 100km.

Their latest journey began at Thorneside Uniting Church and they will hopefully return on 4 September.

They won’t be living the luxury grey nomad lifestyle though, their 1954 ute consists of a basic do-it-yourself campervan to be set up every evening and packed away every morning.

Along the way they hope to share the Barnabas story to those they meet, as an act of gospel witness and encouragement.
