$152k custom Isuzu up for grabs at charity raffle

Mental health fitness charity Gotcha4Life and Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) are offering the chance to win a fully equipped, one-of-a-kind, custom Isuzu NNR Servicepack Crew valued at over $152,000.

Complete with canopy body and a raft of built-in accessories, the truck will be at the upcoming Gotcha4Life Roadshow, travelling from Victoria to NSW via Shepparton, Wagga Wagga, Canberra, Nowra and Wollongong from Easter Monday (April  18) until Friday April 22.

The Mateship Miles will see Gotcha4Life founder Gus Worland visit regional towns that have been affected by fires, floods and COVID-19 over the last few years.

The aim of the roadshow is to kick-start conversations about the importance of building mental fitness, meaningful mateship and social and emotional connection in communities, whilst utilising the custom NNR as a roving community asset and gathering point for free breakfast barbecues in each town.

“This is a one-of-a-kind truck build and something special to reflect the importance of the cause, and its donation expands on our partnership with the Gotcha4Life Foundation,” said IAL marketing manager Sam Gangemi.

“Gotcha4Life is a fantastic organisation taking action to engage, educate and empower Australians from all walks of life through its mental fitness programs.

“From the ground up, this NNR has been developed to serve as a meeting place during the amazing roadshow the Gotcha4Life have planned and we’re extremely honoured to be involved in this capacity.

“In raffling off this spectacular truck, we’re hoping to raise some much-needed funding to ensure Gotcha4Life can continue in their admirable bid to end suicide in this country,” he added.

The NNR has been fitted-out to perform all the functions and luxuries of a remote meeting place, with the unique build facilitated by truck body specialists Service Bodies Australia (SBA).

With a couple of Weber barbecues on board and a Nespresso coffee machine out the side, catering is well and truly taken care of.

On the entertainment side of things, weather-proof TV screens and a professional sound system, powered courtesy of Redarc Electronics will keep viewers amused and informed, while solar panels on the truck ensure the lights never go out and the fridges stay cold.

In terms of its post raffle life, the Isuzu NNR could easily covert into the next campground mecca, much needed crew transport or even a ‘game day basecamp’ for travelling sports teams.

The truck would be a welcome addition to any work site with fridges for workers as well as the coffee making facilities, barbecue and sink.

“There will be 20,000 tickets available at a cost of $25 each and the draw will take place at 10am on Monday 10 October 2022. Results will be published in The Australian newspaper on Wednesday 12 October 2022,” Gangemi said.

“We encourage everyone to dig deep, buy a ticket and go into the draw to win an amazing bit of kit, but most importantly, help us support this noble cause,” he concluded.
