Wacky and wonderful vehicles departed Harvey and made their way through South West bushland for a good cause last week as part of the second annual BulldustNBack Trial. The event, an initiative of the Rotary Club of Mill Point in South Perth, saw 10 teams participate and raise almost $70,000 for charities across the country, sending drivers through Bridgetown, Pemberton and Manjimup in done-up pre-2000s vehicles. Harvey locals Allan Hollow and Kate Bond competed together in the event as part of the Harvey Hoons team. Mr Hollow said what started out as a car rally had turned into an inspiring experience. “Initially it was about driving around in the bush for four days and how much fun that was going to be,” he said. “But now the (Trial) is a sideline, the real joyous part of the journey has been the fundraising.” The team raised $9279 for Harvey charity Bridging Communities which helps families who are doing it tough in the town. Founder and chair Robyn Coleman said the charity was a way for people in the region to help those around them in a tangible way. Mr Hollow, a mechanic, enlisted the help of people around Harvey to liven up a 1992 Mitsubishi Pajero he had at his workshop.
