More than 100 motorbikes and cars cruised for a cause on Saturday to raise funds for local CFS volunteers following the Mount Gambier’s Crater Lakes fire earlier this year.
The event run by Limestone Coast Unique Car Spotting Facebook page Administrator Josh Young raised just over $3600 which will be split between the Mount Gambier, Wattle Range and Kingsley CFS groups.
Vehicles met at the old Bunnings site, taking part in a two-hour cruise, with drivers in high spirits despite some older cars breaking down on the way.
The day ended with a sausage sizzle and raffle at the Valley Lakes giving the community a chance to get together and raise funds for an important cause.
Mr Young said the CFS volunteers deserved the recognition and funds.
“They are volunteers risking their lives to save our lives,” he said.
“They do not know what they are walking into, they just go out there and do not even need to think about doing the right thing, they just do it.
“I am really happy with the variety of cars and it was a really encouraging turnout.
“We had over 30 sponsors which was amazing all of whom I would like to thank for their contribution.”
