The collection is guaranteed to capture everybody’s imagination, with prominent examples of Bentley, Ferrari, Jaguar, Porsche, Rolls Royce and one of the largest Mercedes-Benz car collections in the southern hemisphere.

OUR VOLUNTEERS

We have a fantastic group of volunteers who operate the Open Day program for visitors at the Fox Classic Car Collection museum.

Many of the volunteers have an amazing knowledge of vehicles or are themselves restorers of fine vehicles. They love to chat and are such nice people that they too are a highlight of the museum experience.

 

VOLUNTEERS FOR CHARITY

The door takings from the Volunteer Open Day Program are donated to a range of charities. It is through the goodwill and generosity of the volunteers that such donations are possible.

 

Please contact us if you are interested in becoming one of our volunteers.

"We wish to extend our sincere thanks to the volunteers of Fox Classic Car Collection for the generous donation of $10,000 to The Smith Family in Victoria. The proceeds of your museum tours will make a real difference to children in need.

At The Smith Family, we believe supporting a child’s education is the best way to help break the cycle of disadvantage.

One in seven Australian children and young people are living in poverty and need support from The Smith Family to make the most of their education.

Your generous contribution will support Learning for Life, The Smith Family’s educational support program, which this year reached 33,195 students who live in need, nationally and 7,376 students in Victoria. The Learning for Life program recognises that disadvantaged children need extra support to stay at school and go on to further studies or a job.

Thanks again for your outstanding contribution and we look forward to working with you again in the future."

 

Anton Leschen, General Manager, Victoria - The Smith Family

Thank you for forwarding the generous gift. Berry Street is combining three trauma-informed, evidence based projects which we believe will help prevent the cycle of violence, disadvantage and abuse recurring in both current and future generations. Our vision is to raise $2.4 million over three years….  Fox Classic Car Collection’s contribution will help us reach our ambitious goal.
