Tomorrow! I shall be HURTLING myself over this $10k finish line for the fab Cara Disability Services, WITH both my puppet daughter (who many of you may recall joins me onstage in my cabaret show), PLUS my real-life daughter, who, just like her Mummy, cannot miss out on anything in this lifetime.
So it was that tonight, we joined with my fabulous friend Kath Griffin, a rockstar in her own right – who is also housing us tonight before we jet off – to put together the pram/puppet combo that will be our spaceship of jawsome over this one day of fundraising insanity. The result made us all squeal.
The route we have planned, if you’d like to keep a look-out for us, feed our wondrous little pram puppet a gold coin or two, and/or bring us ice-cream, is as follows:
7am – South Bank (we are kicking off from ABC Radio studios, where I will be chatting to the wonderful Spencer Howson just before official take-off!) Joined by my fellow cabaret lady and co-Betty in Betty and the Betties, Kate Mackie.
8:00am break at Kangaroo Point cliffs.
8:20 Fortitude Valley (walking via Storey Bridge)
9:20 Break in the Valley.
9.45am Valley to New Farm.
11am Lunch break – super kindly donated by Pintxo New Farm!
12:15 Walking the CBD. Queen Street Mall and beyond!
2:00 Break (Botanical Gardens).
2:45 State Library/Art Gallery – tag-teaming with comedian Steven J Whitely.
3.30pm West End.
4.30pm Walk back to South Bank.
5.30pm On 612ABC’s Friday afternoon panel with Tim Cox.
Hope to see you there! Note: if you can’t make it, you can offer a virtual donation here. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
