Our members have diverse interests - not just conservation. Some are sports car enthusiasts too!
Leigh Marian is a FOWST member and was also one of the convenors of the 2014 Triumph Sports Owners Association National Rally, held in Perth. The group is a car club for owners of various Triumph sports cars dating from the 1950s to the ‘80s.
The week-long October rally was based at The Vines, with various social and motoring events.
Two of the local TSOA committee are ‘Friends’; they were given some items to raffle and believed that they might not need all of the funds raised, so decided to donate part of the takings to FOWST. They felt it was appropriate especially because the rally was based in the Swan Valley. Marian used her own funds to add some Edgecombe Bros. wine and Margaret River chocolate tortoises to the prize pool.
As well as donating the money, the organisers mounted a FOWST display on several evenings during the rally, using our brochures, material downloaded from the website and the Friends’ portable poster.
