Drivers Rally to Frontier Services

In a unique new venture for our organisation, Frontier Services has been invited to be charity sponsor of the Red Centre to Gold Coast car rally in September.
We will also use the opportunity of the rally to stage a number of community events in towns and cities along the route to raise awareness of Frontier Services.
The Red Centre to Gold Coast rally is made up of competitive rally sections on closed public roads or private farm tracks. More than 100 vehicles from all over Australia will compete, starting in Alice Springs on September 8 and finishing on the Gold Coast on September 20.
The original Dodge “buckboard” car used by John Flynn will lead off the rally cars at many of their stopovers.
“The rally is an ideal ‘fit’ for Frontier Services,” says National Development Manager David Sullivan.
“It covers a lot of territory where Flynn worked and where Frontier Services is still working. In fact, the theme of our promotional events will be ‘In the footsteps of Flynn’.”
Frontier Services’ logo will appear on all the rally vehicles and event advertising.
Among the events Frontier Services will organise en route will be school walkathons, community breakfasts and a community camp oven dinner in Longreach.
“The undoubted highlight for us, however, will be the staging of a big country music concert in Townsville featuring Troy Cassar-Daly and The Songbirds,” David said.
“This will be an entirely new exercise for Frontier Services but one which we think has great potential for raising awareness and donations towards our work.”
