We’re sponsoring a friend who is doing the Pork Pie Run 2024!

The Pork Pie Charity Run is a bi-annual fundraising road trip for all Mini owners, based loosely on the route taken by the Blondini Gang in the original movie.

The first run took place in 2009 with 36 teams making the trip from Kaitaia to Invercargill over 5 days.  The subsequent 7 runs have seen participant numbers increase to a 60 car maximum with the run extended to 6 days on the road.  Participant numbers are now limited to 50 teams due to availability of accommodation and other logistical issues.  Entries consistently oversubscribe in just minutes!!

The Run has raised funds for Starship Hospital, Leukaemia & Blood Cancer New Zealand and KidsCan. To date across all previous events, almost $2,000,000 has been raised, with a record $416,000 raised in 2023 for KidsCan!

You can check out some pictures of the latest journey and team’s adventures on the official website here.

What we’re doing:

$5 from every invoice in June & July will be donated to KidsCan via our sales rep at Corys Electrical, Emma Ward. If you want to help support this amazing charity who literally save kids lives daily, you can donate here too!
