Fundraise & Volunteer

We couldn't do what we do without the help from volunteers.

If you're interested in helping out or fundraising for Drive Against Depression, read on for some ideas or to get in touch. Your involvment means the world to us.

Fundraise for DAD

Of course, the natural inclination is to get a group together and go for a drive… and we are all for that! However, if you’d like to do something a little bit different, we have some suggestions below:

Motoring book and DVD buy, swap and sell

Host a garage-style, motoring-themed buy, swap and sell. A small entry donation and a percentage of sale proceeds can go a long way to supporting Drive Against Depression.

Endurance driving events

Many car clubs and other organisations offer showcase events that test team endurance and car preparation to the full. It’s a great way to build camaraderie among a group of mates. Ask your friendship network to support your endeavours by donating an amount for the achievement of a distance or lap target.

Alternatively, take a look at what Paul and Bruce Dobney achieved during the 2019 Repco Reliability Retrail, which raised funds for Drive Against Depression. 

Spare parts and swap meet

Similar in feel to the motoring book and DVD buy, swap and sell theme, why not gather the car club together, ask for a donation at the gate, and line up some stalls with your no-longer-needed parts?

Movie night

Love a classic car movie? It could be Bullitt, it could be Senna… it could be Herbie. Host a group, load up on snacks, have conversations and connect for a gold coin donation.

Setup a Fundraising Page

Set up a Fundraising Page for your chosen project and then invite your friends, family and colleagues to get involved and support you. You can track how much money you have raised and keep people updated on your progress.


Even if you have only a couple of hours per month, every minute you can provide a hand contributes to supporting those with depression and anxiety.
