Residential Pools and Spas

Pool industry rallying for charity

April 15, 2022

Tony Rodda of Allan’s Pool Shop in Cairns (winner of the 2020 Business of the Year at the SPASA National Awards) is organising a team for the Shitbox Rally 2022 Autumn, held May 7 to May 13, travelling from Wollongong to Mackay via Tibooburra.

Rodda is organising a car representing the pool industry to participate in the rally to raise money for cancer research. Tony’s brother Nick will be driving the “Goldmember” car from Wollongong to Mackay and back.

The Shitbox Rally is not a race, rather a challenge to achieve the unthinkable – to drive cars worth just no more than $1000 across Australia via 7000 kilometres of the country’s most formidable roads, all in the name of charity.

Goldmember is a 90s Mercedes sedan with more than 400,000 kilometres on the clock.

The funds raised are for cancer research and all funds go directly to the Cancer Council.

Lo-chlor Chemicals and Hayward Industries are two of the industry organisations who have put their hands up to sponsor Goldmember.
