We're reaching out to you today to see if you can help us generate interest for a very valuable children's charity... Camp Quality. The charity is once again hosting its Camp Quality Convoy Victoria to raise much funds to help children and families touched by cancer. Can you help us spread the word and generate some registrations amongst truck drivers and motorcyclists? A full press release is below (and attached). Below the press release is a dropbox link for images, and associated captions. If you need any of these images compressed and emailed direct please don't hesitate to ask. Kind regards, Alison Treloar Senior Account Manager Seftons 0422 093 639 alison.treloar@seftons.com.au Issue date: 19 March 2019 Camp Quality Convoy Victoria returns to the road again for children’s cancer It’s back! The Camp Quality Convoy Victoria will hit the road again on Sunday 7 April after a year off, with dozens of trucks and motorbikes expected to join the fun at Avalon Airport. Australia’s leading provider of aftermarket truck and trailer parts, Truckline has announced it will continue its generous support of the event and is also entering a special guest in the Convoy. The new International Pro-star demonstration truck will take a break from its tour around Victoria to feature in the day’s activities and is expected to draw a lot of interest from truck enthusiasts. For Truckline’s Territory Business Manager (VIC/TAS) Casey Stewart, this event holds special meaning for her and her family, after sadly losing her niece to childhood cancer at just five years of age. “I’m proud that Truckline is continuing their support of and involvement in this event and to see it back again after a hugely successful 2017 Convoy. It was a terrible tragedy for my family when we lost my niece, so I’m keen to do anything I can to support other families living with cancer,” Casey said. “Camp Quality is an incredible organisation that does so much for children growing up with cancer and their families. The programs and services offered to these children and their parents and siblings have a lasting impact and are such a great help through such a difficult time.” Camp Quality State Manager for Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia, Kendra Overall acknowledged that continued support from Truckline and other sponsors allowed the event to return and focus on raising as much money as possible. “With the ongoing support from Truckline and principal partner Viva Energy, we wouldn’t be able to hold an event like the Convoy and raise the money we do. Having corporate sponsors means all the funds raised by the truck drivers, the motorbike riders and the community at large supports Victorian kids to help children 0-13 deal with their own diagnosis, or the diagnosis of someone they love, like a brother, sister, mum or dad. We are there for them through the daily ups and downs of cancer. We create opportunities for the kids to be kids again: in-hospital, at home, at school and away from it all.,” Kendra said. “In the words of a family member: Camp Quality provides us with the opportunity to escape the daily treadmill of everyday life. To have smiles and laugher in the midst of a dark time is priceless.” Kendra told us. After a year off, this year’s Convoy will proceed slightly differently from earlier events, including the introduction of a Show and Shine following previous feedback. Registration fees for trucks and motorbikes in the Convoy are also substantially reduced this year, making the convoy accessible for participants, with all Convoy entrants encouraged to use the event to drive fundraising from their own networks. The Convoy will start from Avalon Airport at 8:00am on April 7, arriving back at the airport around midday where the Show and Shine and a range of family-friendly events will take place, including face painting for the kids, courtesy of sponsor Truckline. General entry is a gold coin donation, which includes the family activities on-site, and a raffle will be conducted to support the fundraising initiative. The day will conclude at 3pm. To register for the Convoy, go the website convoy.org.au ENDS About Truckline Truckline is Australia’s largest retailer of aftermarket truck and trailer parts, supporting all makes and models of North American, European and Japanese commercial vehicles.

Top 5 Organisational Tips by Justine Wilson 2019-03-05T22:35:42Z top-5-organisational-tips-by-justine-wilson Justine Wilson on the art of decluttering Top 5 organisational tips for your home Media Release - March 2019 Justine Wilson, Sydney Property Styling Expert and Director of Vault Interiors, has unveiled her top 5 organisational tips for the home inspired by Marie Kondo, who has been hailed as the queen of organisation for helping people de-clutter and tidy their homes. With a few simple and practical methods, you can create spaces where positivity can flourish. Justine Wilson says, “At Vault Interiors we strongly believe that having a tidy, neat organised space can make you fall in love with your home again, and you should feel lighter mentally too. Shifting the energy of a space can totally transform your home and change your mindset at the same time. It can be life changing. “If you haven’t read Marie Kondo’s book or seen her Netflix show yet, now is the time to jump on the bandwagon. Not only are her methods easy to implement but they really do work and will change the way you look at tidying up, turning it from a chore into a way to inject new energy into your home,” adds Justine. Now that autumn is here, there’s no better time to organise your home! Justine’s top 5 organisational tips: Know your intentions. Know how you want to use the spaces in your home will ultimately help you decide what items are important. It will also make your home a positive place to live, and have positive energy for visitors. Decide which items “spark joy”. Marie’s methods are built on the philosophy that a home should be filled with only those items that make you happy – and I totally support this. Deciding what you love and can’t live without is the hardest part, but once you can do it, the rest is a breeze! It’s ok to keep things, so long as you love them. Store things correctly. With items such as clothing, store them in a way you can clearly see what you have maximises space and allows for easy access. When it comes to other miscellaneous items, sort into piles of keep and throw away. Sort your items by category, not location. This can make the process overwhelming, so focus on one category at a time. Use boxes and containers to store essential papers and books to make your space look neater and it will allow you to find things more quickly. Leave sentimental items until last. Items such as photographs and personal objects are often the hardest to let go, so sort through them last when you’ve had plenty of practice separating non-sentimental items. “Tidying up can not only help you reconnect with your space, but it can help you start to consider the way you accumulate belongings in the future,” adds Justine.

The Ocean Guardian’s FREEDOM+ Surf is powered by Shark Shield Technology and designed in partnership with Tom Carroll. The new mini antenna is specifically designed to overcome ergonomic issues associated with surfers using smaller boards - now there is a personal shark protection device for all surfers. Tom Carroll, Ocean Guardian Ambassador and two-time World Surfing Champion says, “It’s great that we can now offer a solution for all surfers no matter the size of their board. The new FREEDOM+ Surf Mini Antenna is recommended for shorter boards of less than 6’. Thanks to the new design, when duck diving with the board the previous zap experienced by those using the full-size antenna on shorter boards should be eliminated. Really giving no surfer an excuse to not take their personal protection into their own hands.” Lindsay Lyon, CEO of Ocean Guardian says, “The mini antenna produces exactly the same power output as the regular FREEDOM+ Surf antenna however, it creates a smaller protective electrical field due to the electrodes being smaller and closer together. The new mini antenna does not replace the existing FREEDOM+ Surf antenna, but now all surfers, with all sized boards, can benefit from this patented technology.” The FREEDOM+ Surf Mini Antenna will be available from Wednesday 27th at an RRP of $149 and can be purchased from all good surf retailers.

While it’s quite a mouthful to say – the look, at least, is very easy to achieve. As the weather changes, it’s the greatest time to consider sprucing up your interiors, ready for the long nights indoors. Sydney Property Styling expert and Director of Vault Interiors, Justine Wilson says, “The American Modern Farmhouse trend is going to dominate interiors in Autumn 2019. The style is characterised by rustic textures, thick wool, distressed furniture, reclaimed statement pieces, overly neutral palette, leather, timber, concrete, metal, brick and lots of faux greenery and layering.” Justine’s top 7 tips to get the ‘American Modern Farmhouse’ look in your home: Substitute artwork for over scale vintage signs or script work. Think words such as “bakery” or “laundry”. You can find lots of signs like this on Etsy. Layer your rugs. Try a sisal rug with a woollen rug on top. Try the Luella Synthetic Rug from Pottery Barn. Pair leather cushions with light neutrals. Opt for linen, plaid or woollen designs. Rustic statement pieces are key. Use timber chests as coffee tables; think old look farmhouse dining tables, timber benches in your foyer and distressed wooden consoles. Pick up a gem on Gumtree, thrift stores, or give some old pieces a little love. With a bit of elbow grease, a quick sand and a lick of paint you can have the look in an affordable way. Try Mayson Coffee Table from Freedom or the Fulham Shelving Unit from Early Settler. Industrial pieces will contrast the natural style. Make a serious impression in the room, think iron barstools and metal bookshelves. You could also try industrial floating shelves and wooden with black iron brackets. Clever grouping of faux greenery. Use glass containers and group three to five of the same plan leaf. Simple glass canisters work well. Try palm leave, fake herbs or fiddle leaf plants. Kmart is great! Install feature walls. Try shiplap or board and baton as these are inexpensive materials, easy to install and can be bought at any hardware store. White brick and vinyl wallpaper is very on trend and for this look. “The reason I like this look for autumn is it’s a very warm, durable, earthy family friendly and timeless feel, perfect to encourage lingering chats, and for snuggling up on the sofa. Grab a cup of Cocoa, and settle in with layers of wool throws for a picture perfect Instagram worthy look,” adds Justine.

It will most likely be the biggest investment, let alone debt, most first-time car buyers have committed to in their lives. So, to equip those looking to take the plunge, Mark Turner, General Manager of Terry Shields Toyota Parramatta, shares his expert tips to help ease the stress and ensure customers are confident in their purchase. With over 45 years of experience in the motor industry, Mark Turner from Terry Shields Toyota Parramatta says, “Buying your first car can be an overwhelming experience. There are many things to consider such as finance, insurance, the type of model, through to safety and durability. There is only so much research you can do online before information overload sets in. “After you’ve narrowed down your top three cars, I recommend the next thing you do is visit the dealerships to get some hands-on experience with each car and advice from a team of experts who can help you make your decision all in the one place,” said Mark. Marks shares his top 5 tips for first-time car buyers: Know what the car is for – As simple as this sounds knowing why you are buying the car will help you decide which car is your best fit. Are you driving short distances to work daily or commuting in traffic? Will you need extra space to carry oversized objects or something small to zip around the city? Narrowing down what you are going to use the car for will allow you to eliminate car options. Know how much you can afford – As good as zero percent finance may sound this also means you would be signing up to a lot of hidden costs and charges. We recommend saving up at least 10% of the total price of the vehicle as a deposit and setting yourself a conservative limit on how much finance you can really afford without stretching your limits. Find out your credit score – When applying for finance, our Finance Business Managers will check your credit history. Even if you think you don’t have one, it’s important you are on top of your credit score. Having a clear credit rating will speed up the process and ensure you are eligible for the best interest rate available on the market. Don’t buy the first car you see – It’s important that you shop around before committing to a car. Take potential cars out for a test drive and get an experienced dealer to take you through the features of each vehicle in detail so you don’t miss anything you love or hate. Remember hidden cost – The advertised price is not the be all and end all. Car purchases, like homes, are accompanied by a range of additional costs and fees. You need to factor in interest on loans, servicing, insurance, stamp duty and transfer fees before settling on a car.
