Dane Waites is officially on the way to Perth to begin his run back to Pambula and he has the Eden community to thank for getting him on the road. 

ARV Caravans donated a motorhome for Dane and his support crew to sleep in during his journey.

“Dane is a great person with an infectious smile and I'm sure if you have driven on the roads of the Bega Valley you have probably come across him at some stage,” the team at ARV posted online. “ARV Caravans were very happy to help such a fantastic cause.”

However, ARV Caravans over Bryan Hammond said they didn’t do it alone. Sapphire Marine and Automotive put in a lot of hours helping with the mechanical side of getting the motorhome ready and Gippsland Tyre Service contributed tyres. 

But the motorhome from ARV wasn’t the only set of wheels donated from Eden. 

Con and Paula Zurcas of Eden Toyota had Dane jumping for joy when they donated a beautiful new Hilux SR-5.

Oh what a feeling: Dane Waites was jumping for joy when he saw the vehicle that Eden Toyota donated for his Perth to Pambula journey.
