Dometic supports Convoy for Charity concerts

Dometic is proudly supporting the fundraising efforts of What's Up Downunder for the National Breast Cancer Foundation during their Convoy for Charity concerts 2 to 14 November 2015.

Caravan and camping TV show What’s Up Downunder takes to the road – and sea – to stage free concerts throughout regional Victoria and Tasmania, which will cover 1,600 kms in 10 days.  

The concerts will be filmed as part of the What’s Up Downunder Summer Series, to be aired nationally on Network Ten throughout January and February 2016.

Brian Cadd, Wendy Stapleton and Tania Kernaghan are just some of the acts performing at the free concerts which start in Nagambie on Cup Eve, go onto Ballarat and Torquay, before boarding the Spirit of Tasmania and performing in Cradle Mountain, St Helen’s and finally Hobart for the grand finale concert on 14 November.

Now in its fourth year, the Convoy for Charity has grown significantly, in 2014 raising more than $25,000 from concert donations. Organisers are expecting to exceed this figure this year, with the added boost of Tasmania – recently listed as the third most desired caravanning destination.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation is the leading community-funded organisation in Australia raising money for research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer.

The Convoy for Charity showcases the most advanced caravans on the market from Nova, New Age, Roadstar, Coromal, Sunland, Jayco, Bolwell, Royal Flair and Lotus. The concerts are sponsored by Dometic, a worldwide supplier of quality, innovative products to the RV and Marine industries.

These manufacturers are all members of the Caravan Industry Association (CIAV), who make the Convoy for Charity possible and help us Go Make Some Memories.

CONVOY FOR CHARITY ROLLS OUT THE BIG GUNS

The $17 billion dollar caravan industry will once again puts its might and wheel power behind the Convoy for Charity next month, as caravan and camping TV show What’s Up Downunder takes to
the road – and sea – to stage free concerts throughout regional Victoria and Tasmania to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation and showcase the newest and most advanced caravans on the market.

Brian Cadd, Wendy Stapleton and Tania Kernaghan are just some of the acts performing at the free concerts which start in Nagambie on Cup Eve, go onto Ballarat and Torquay, before boarding the Spirit of Tasmania and performing in Cradle Mountain, St Helen’s and finally Hobart for the grand finale concert on November 14.

Now in its fourth year, the Convoy for Charity has grown significantly, in 2014 raising more than $25,000 from concert donations. Organisers are expecting to exceed this figure this year, with the added boost of Tasmania – recently listed as the third most desired caravanning destination.

The Convoy which will cover 1,600 kms in 10 days, and the concerts will be filmed as part of the What’s Up Downunder Summer Series, to be aired nationally on Network Ten throughout January and February 2016.

What’s Up Downunder’s Executive Producer Warren Parrot said the Convoy for Charity sums up the fun and comradery of caravanning.

“There’s nothing better than looking out into the audience at our concerts and seeing hundreds of people of all ages - adults, teenagers, kids, all enjoying the outdoors together, dancing to our music and having a fantastic time – all for free and for a great cause.”

While caravanning is without doubt one of the most enjoyable forms of holidaying for 600,000 plus caravanning enthusiasts each year, it is also big business, generating more than 17 billion dollars in the Australian economy each year. At any one time it is estimated there are 300,000 caravans on the road.

For regional towns, like those on the Convoy for Charity, that equates to $1.3 billion spent over a year on food, fuel, tourist attractions, accommodation, and leisure activities.

The regular series of What’s Up Downunder airs nationally at 4pm Saturdays on Network Ten and 5pm Sundays on One HD. The show is hosted by Terry Rogers, Angie Hilton and Macca and features guests such as Tania Kernaghan and Sunny Hawkings.
