Every 2 years, a group of Mini owners drive the length of New Zealand – from Kaitaia to Bluff (2,600 km). They follow the route and adventures taken by a little yellow Mini in the 1981 New Zealand film “Goodbye Pork Pie“, hence the name the Pork Pie Run
Each Mini entrant pays all costs associated with this drive , and also each team fundraises for a local charity.
Next Year’s run (Easter 2015) my brother, sister, and nephew (and respective partners/spouse) are taking 3 Minis on this journey, the above yellow ones, Bumble and Molly, and Bob (the middle blue one in the above group of 5).
They are raising money for “KidsCan”, a local charity that supports disadvantaged (Kiwi) children.
Read more about this wonderful adventure here. I ask you to check it out, and if possible, follow them and this endeavour next Easter, and send them messages of support. (I’ll post a reminder closer to the time!). There is even a FaceBook page – feel free to like it here. “3 Cars, 6 people, 2600 Km” – that’s “The A Team”
So yellow? It is Goodbye Pork Pie, Minis, raising money for charity, and having a lot of fun.

Live, laugh, Love!
