Former truck driver and now WA Senator Glenn Sterle is back behind the wheel this Christmas, once again lending his services to those who need it most.
Back in July, Sterle and Centurion transport’s co-founder Carl Cardaci ran from Perth to Fitzroy Crossing on a 2373km trip delivering sporting equipment donated by Velocity Truck Centres, and more than 100 kindness kits donated by Dandelions WA to be used by Marninwarntikura Women’s Resource Centre (Marnin).
This time, Sterle is flying solo and is currently on his third run over the last month, travelling up to the Kimberley.
I’ve done a quick turn around and am now back on my last run for charity before Christmas. I stopped off at Stockyards, north of Newman in WA to send you all an update. Stay safe on the roads and drive so other survive! @CenturionTrans @BigRigsnews @pafrazer #DriveSOS pic.twitter.com/E7X0V7EFUa

Having been to Derby twice and Broom once, Sterle is again partnering with Centurion Transport to assist community sports programs and delivering new sporting equipment to support kids in Fitzroy Crossing in Western Australia.
Despite a few blow outs and replacing a light lead in 38-degree heat, Sterle is enjoying swapping a suit and tie for hi-vis and being back on the road in a T909, posting videos from his Facebook page.
“I’m having a ball. This is where the real people are,” said Sterle.
“I’d rather be up here doing this for a good cause. It beats sitting in the Senate chamber looking at the heads over the other side I can tell you.”
All the money that would have been paid to Glenn in terms of wages will be donated to Dandelions WA to support the amazing work that they do supporting families, kids and people in need in regional Western Australia.
