Fun, mates for a cause

IF YOU need an excuse to have a good time while donating your time and money to a good cause, you can't go past the Great Endeavour Rally.

Just ask Lionel Moore from Lionel Moore Trailers. Last week we told you about how Lionel Moore Trailers is making a difference for people with a disability by building and auctioning off 2 x 24m3 triaxle side tippers and 1 x triaxle converter dolly to raise money for Endeavour Foundation, one of Australia's largest disability service providers.

This week we'll tell you why he goes to all that effort. For 15 years Lionel Moore has taken on Endeavour Foundation's Great Endeavour Rally, a car rally that wends its way through some of Australia's wildest country.

In July, the 25th Great Endeavour Rally will take entrants 5000km from Toowoomba to Yeppoon via the Gulf of Carpentaria, and the Moore family is really looking forward to it.

Lionel Moore's sons Shayne and Grahame also get involved. Shayne, joint managing director of Moore Trailers, said they all have made lifelong friends on the Great Endeavour Rally.

"We only get to catch up with our rally mates once a year, but when we do we have a great time," Shayne said.

Shayne also said that the fact that all of their time and effort goes to supporting people with a disability is a reward in itself.

"We get a lot of satisfaction out of donating to the Foundation as it is a great cause," Shayne said.

Endeavour Foundation provides support services, including supported accommodation, respite, education and supported employment to over 3350 people with a disability.
