Bowel Cancer NZ News

Where: Akaroa, Christchurch

When: 14th of July 2018, departing at 11.00am

Entry Fee: Donation of choice

Everyone is welcome to join Lyndal on her inaugural Mid-Winter Christmas Car Cruise on Saturday 14 July 2018.

After departing Christchurch, we will head over to the beautiful Akaroa stopping at the Duvauchelle Bar & Bistro for some light food and refreshments.

We will then continue the journey to Akaroa, parking up behind the Grand Hotel alongside the Boat Ramp (where you can purchase further food and refreshments) and mingle with other participants while enjoying the vast collection of cars on show.  The return journey home is at your leisure.

We encourage anyone who has a car that they love, to come along. There are no restrictions on the type of car, but we’d love to see some cool stuff – anything that runs on petrol and spins your wheels!

To take part requires a donation of your choice. All proceeds will go directly to Bowel Cancer New Zealand, in support of Bowel Cancer Awareness Month and #nevertooyoung.

We will be collecting donations on the day, or these can be made prior to the event via the following link

For further information, contact Lyndal via or 021 55 44 52
