ROTARY & THE EARBUS FOUNDATION_THEY'RE ROLLING!!!
Last Friday the Earbus was (informally) handed over to the Earbus Foundation. It's a GEM!
The vehicle will now be put through a set of operational trials to ensure the design is fit for purpose.
There will be a period to adjust any issues found during the field trials and the vehicle will be transformed with an appropriate Aboriginal livery for its work in the field. This will take some time and to allow for this and to distance this very important project from politics, the formal handover will occur some time after the March 2017 State Election.
The Handover-From One very delighted team to a very excited one.

Lara will drive the Earbus with her team and learn all about operating this fabulous asset. The fit-out is a very neat and professionally laid out example of style and craftsmanship. Ron (pictured below with Paul) and the Team from Osborne Motor Bodies can be justifiably proud of their work!
Nick Nedkoff & Earbus Team want to thank all the extremely generous donors on behalf of the thousands of Aboriginal children who will benefit from the work thw Earbus will facilitate.
