GOTCHA4LIFE RAFFLE TRUCK FOR MENTAL FITNESS  

Mental fitness foundation, Gotcha4Life, and Isuzu Australia Limited (IAL) are giving the public a rare chance to win a fully equipped and absolutely unique Isuzu NNR Servicepack Crew with canopy body and a raft of built-in accessories valued at over $152,000, and all for a fantastic cause. 

Before going to raffle, the one-of-a-kind, custom truck build will be attending the upcoming Mateship Miles roadshow with Gotcha4Life, travelling from Victoria to New South Wales via Shepparton, Wagga Wagga, Canberra, Nowra and Wollongong from Easter Monday 18 April until Friday 22 April.

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 that 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 said.  

Bells and whistles 

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 an all-important 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, all powered courtesy of Redarc Electronics will keep viewers amused and informed. Solar panels on the truck will 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 all over the country.  

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. This versatile truck could slot into any number of applications.  

In it to win it 

“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,” Mr 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.”
