Peards Complex Albury, Feb 14, 2015
George and Debra Benyon are off to Darwin this week to support the Borella Ride that is being held as part of the Northern Territory’s Anzac Centenary Program in 2015.
The inspiring journey of Albert Borella from Tennant Creek to Darwin to join the combat of World War 1 will be re-enacted with participants travelling from Tennant Creek to Darwin symbolically retracing Borella’s trek, which included walking, horse riding, hitching a ride on a horse drawn mail cart and a train ride.
The Borella Ride will visit towns and communities along the Stuart Highway, with a range of activities planned for each community including a travelling exhibition, community receptions and BBQs, campfire talks, ceremonial and educational activities.
George and Debra have been invited by Adam Giles, the Chief Minister of the Northern Territory and will attend the welcoming function being held for all participants whilst Albert Borella’s grandson, Richard Borella, will be the representative Borella Rider during the journey.
We wish all participants the best of luck and thank the Northern Territory Government for putting on such a wonderful event to commemorate Captain Albert Borella’s Journey.
