Car club revs up for sick kids
THE members of the Lazy Sunday Car Club certainly have more on their minds than hot wheels and hooning. Their regular “show and shine” days also aim to raise money for worthy causes.

And they will be doing just that when they present the Christmas Toy Drive Car Show ‘N Shine at Blacktown Tavern, 81 Kildare Road, Blacktown on Saturday, November 25 from 1pm to 5pm.

Organiser Daniel Vlatkovic said somewhere between 10 to 15 car clubs – including Rod 2 Mod - will be taking part in the day with the aim of raising funds, and donating toys for Christmas, to Westmead and Randwick Children’s Hospitals.

Daniel said he and three fellow car lovers formed the Lazy Sunday Car Club seven months ago to “help people less fortunate than ourselves”.

The former security guard was injured in the course of his work and subsequently suffered trauma and, he says, “some pretty serious PTSD”. Rather than sit at home and “stare into the abyss” he decided to turn things around by giving back to the community through the car club.

To date the members have raised almost $6000 for a range of charities through their regular car shows.

“We have raised money for sick kids, men’s mental health, breast cancer support and domestic violence among others,” Daniel said.

“We do all the big issues because as a car club we feel the need to stand against all those things and help them out when we can.”

The club hosts car shows at least twice a month at a range of venues and all proceeds are donated to charity.

“We want to change the world one rev at a time,” Daniel said.

The family friendly day at Blacktown Tavern will feature hundreds of cars on show as well as raffles and a charity auction.

It’s $15 to enter a car in the show or $10 if you also donate a toy.

Visitors can see the cars for free but are encouraged to donate a toy (new toys only) and make a donation at one of the charity buckets that will be placed around the venue.
