Shannons Wheels 2023 (NSW)

By Janet Werner Join Me

I'm fundraising to prevent, treat and beat stroke!

The 41st Anniversary of 'Wheels' is raising funds and awareness for Stroke Foundation to help prevent, treat and beat stroke.

Back to the 1950s

The 41st display is being organised by the Canberra Antique and Classic Motor Club on behalf of the Council of ACT Motor Clubs. The Council has 75 affiliated clubs.

The show features vehicles from the early days of motoring right up to the latest generation of EVs.

The 2023 show also adds another dimension by turning a spotlight onto a particularly interesting era, the 1950s. Clubs are being requested to highlight members' cars and bikes built in the 1950s, as well as their full range of vehicles from other eras.

The Back to the 1950s spotlight displays will bring back many memories of the fins and chrome era, with American and British cars easily recognisable by their shape and style. There will be a special one-off trophy for the club with the best display of 1950s vehicles.

Stroke attacks the brain, the human control centre, changing lives in an instant. It can happen to anyone, at any age and affects everyone differently.

Few people will think about stroke until it touches their life.

It’s estimated more than 27,400 people will have a stroke in Australia for the first time in 2022, equating to one stroke every nineteen minutes.

Today, there are over 445,000 people in our community whose lives have been changed by stroke and their number is growing.

Stroke Foundation is a national charity that partners with the community to prevent stroke, save lives and enhance recovery.

With your support, Stroke Foundation can provide support to those affected right now and fund research to fight stroke.

Join us today in making a difference to stroke prevention, treatment and care.
