“We know people whose children have benefited from the fundraising by Variety in WA,” Mrs Brooker said.

Each entrant raises $4000 for the charity, which helps sick, disadvantaged or disabled children.

The Brookers are 20-year members of Variety WA and have done five cruises for the charity.

Their Valiant will be rolled out of its garage for a third entry in the fundraiser to join another 30 classic, historic, custom, sports and modified cars for a three-day trip from Perth through Mandurah to Yallingup.

Variety WA chief executive Michael Pailthorpe said the cruise had become popular among car enthusiasts and the owners of cars as diverse as Aussie V8s, American hotrods and British Rolls Royces were expected his year.

“In 2015, the Variety Creative Car Cruise raised over $185,000, which is a result we are really proud of and we’re hoping we can top that in 2016,” Mr Pailthorpe said.
