Danyelle Haigh, who many will recognise from her regular appearances on Outback Truckers, is now filming for a travel TV show that raises money for charity.
Haigh runs Murranji Water Drilling with her husband Anthony Haigh. They recently relocated to the NT with their two young boys.
This week she’s in Victoria’s Gippsland region for filming of the TV travel show Adventure All Stars.
Haigh is among 12 cast members who were required to raise funds for a nominated philanthropic cause, and their reward for doing so was to star on the show.
Her chosen charity was Diabetes Australia, a cause close to her heart. “Diabetes is pretty close to me. I’m quite passionate about it because my dad’s mum died of diabetes, my dad has diabetes and so does my nephew and my uncles. I had gestational diabetes and it’s likely I may develop it too. The quicker they find a cure and can do more research into it, the better,” she said.
While filming for Adventure All Stars in Gippsland, Haigh and the cast will experience the region, including horse riding, sailing, surfing, mountain biking and helicopter flights.
The show is comprised on 10 one-hour episodes and comes from Australian production company Charity TV Global.
It premiered on the Seven Network in 2019.
All net proceeds are granted to Australian charities aligned to each series – funds raised via the Gippsland episode will support Friends of Mithra, Project Karma, Myeloma Australia and Diabetes Australia.
“Adventure All Stars is the ultimate road trip where TV viewers get to experience incredible locations through the eyes of an engaging and socially conscious cast,” said Charity TV Global.
“Adventure All Stars is currently broadcast to an audience approaching 100 million people in 25 countries.
“The second season of Adventure All Stars featuring Gippsland will be screened across the globe, with more countries added to a broadcast deal secured with Outdoor Channel Asia.”
Charity TV Global has raised over $9 million for charity to date.
