Win a 5 night holiday and support the Ukraine Crisis Appeal on behalf of the Australian Red Cross

This appeal, organised by the Australian Red Cross, provides life-saving aid, food, shelter and hygiene items to the people and communities in Ukraine.

Whitsunday Escape and generous boat owner, Bob from Mackay, are proudly supporting this cause. We are offering a 5-night bareboat charter on the fabulous Five Star Leopard 43 Power Catamaran valued at $10,000, in an effort to raise much needed funds. Tickets are available to residents of QLD, NSW, TAS and NT only. Only 1000 tickets available so don’t miss out! Tickets are available here.

There were no details left unattended in the creation of the Leopard 43 power catamaran. She has four double cabins, two bathrooms and the saloon will accommodate another double, therefore can sleep up to ten.

This well equipped power catamaran features plenty of areas to relax and unwind – a generous shaded flybridge with dining table, a daybed plus a roomy aft cockpit with ample seating.


The situation unfolding in Ukraine is deeply concerning.

The ongoing and now escalating violence in Ukraine is inflicting heavy humanitarian consequences on people’s lives and wellbeing, their homes, and essential infrastructure. It continues eight long years of conflict adding more pain, loss and turmoil.

You can help the Red Cross teams who are on the ground providing first aid, supporting health facilities with medicines and equipment, providing families with food, shelter and hygiene items, delivering much-needed water, and repairing vital infrastructure.

Purchasing a ticket will support the Ukraine Crisis Appeal which will help provide emergency relief and longer-term humanitarian support to people and communities affected by this unfolding crisis.

Your contribution can help provide the life-saving support needed right now and, in the weeks and months to come. That support may include:

  • Humanitarian activities to enable Red Cross and Red Crescent partners to address immediate and longer terms needs in Ukraine and neighbouring countries, including to people who are displaced. This includes emergency relief assistance such as shelter, health, water and sanitation.
  • Specialist aid workers to assist local teams to respond to the crisis
  • Helping people restore contact with family members separated by the crisis by offering services to maintain family links and locate missing family members
  • Monitoring and evaluation of the support

Thank you for your support!
