Lovegrove heads Pork Pie fundraiser

Willie, left, and Sam Ryburn will race their Mini 2600kms.

Brothers Sam and Willie Ryburn, of Warkworth, will compete in their third Pork Pie Charity Run at Easter and have set themselves a fundraising target of $30,000.

Over seven days, the Ryburns will race a modified Mini from Kaitaia to Invercargill – a total of 2600kms – while raising funds for KidsCan.

As part of their fundraising campaign, a Comedy and Auction night will be held at The Bridgehouse back bar on Thursday, March 21.

Compering the evening will be comedian Brendhan Lovegrove. Autographed items, such as All Blacks’ shirts and other sports paraphernalia, will be on the block. This year, the brothers will race in a stretch Mini Limo.

“The team at Allens Autos has once again worked long hours in making sure that it’s going to last the
distance,” Sam says.

If the race goes to plan, all 60 Minis in the rally will make a brief stop at The Grange in Warkworth on Good Friday, from around 10am onwards.
