Mini-Guard-1 Mini-Guard-2





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!

    I will be posting more about this charity event when it’s closer to the time.

    (I’m also sorry for my absence this week. I will try to catch up before Christmas! Thanks for understanding the craziness of the holidays.)

  2. Awesome! Cool tribute to ‘Goodbye Pork Pie’ and a great charity to support. “There’s only one sure thing in life Blondini, & that’s doubt, I think.”
