STAWELL - People in pink shirts plus a convoy of caravans and recreational vehicles (RVs) made their way into Stawell's Main Street last week.
It was the crew from the television show What's Up Down Under teaming up again with the Caravan Trades and Industries Association (CTIA) Victoria for the annual Convoy for Charity featuring eight caravans and RVs.
This year, the cast and crew was raising much needed funds for the McGrath Foundation as well as showcasing the 'Go Make Some Memories' Top 10 destinations and they were visiting places all within three hours of Melbourne, which included Stawell and the Grampians region.
It was day four of their 14 day tour, which will finish at Federation Square on Sunday, November 10 with a massive concert headlined by Daryl Braithwaite.
What's Up Down Under had already toured along the coast, visiting Warrnambool and Port Campbell before setting off inland to Cobden then Terang, across to Mortlake and Lake Bolac.
Then it was onto the Grampians, staying at Lake Fyans Holiday Park for another concert that was held last Wednesday evening.
The cast and crew were out with their collection tins in Main Street, collecting for the McGrath Foundation breast care nurses and it was a scene repeated in all the towns and stops along the way.
The cast were then setting off to Bendigo via Ararat, Maryborough, Dunolly, Tarpagulla, Newbridge and Marong.
By November 10, the Convoy for Charity will have travelled more than 2000 kilometres around the state.
Terry Rogers, host of What's Up Down Under, said the cast and crew had been blown away by the generosity from Victoria's regional areas.
"We've had people give $100 and $200. It's been incredible," Mr Rogers said.
"We've been touched by the stories of those who've been personally affected by breast cancer and those who have helped by the McGrath Foundation."
The cast and crew of What's Up Down Under are encouraging their fans, viewers, visitors and readers alike to join them along the journey and support this worthy cause.
