Hosted by Member of Newcastle Tim Crakanthorp, alongside Variety’s Head of Regional Development Jason Bourke, the event is planned to be the first of many as part of the Community Building Partnership program.

“It’s a fantastic new addition to Newcastle,” Crakanthorp said of the mobile coffee van. “$20,000 to get this amazing machine. It’s a group effort with Jason [Bourke] and some very discounted beans from Crema Coffee Garage.”

“It’s good publicity for Variety in the park, and getting their brand out there to make sure that both they and the school that they are partnered with get a lot of exposure. We [were] right in the middle of the park with a lot of red, so it really stands out.”
