I am very pleased and honoured to have been able to give my support to the Variety Club of Australia. It has been a great privilege and joy being able to
help those less fortunate in many of the great Variety events that have been held over the years.
When ever you purchase on line through the Barry Crocker Shop, 10% of all profits to to the Variety Club of Australia. They are a very worthy cause and if you can spare some time for them or if you have the ability to send them some money then I know that it will be put to good use. You can visit their website at www.variety.org.au
