Kerry Kennedy
& Double Barrel
Stars Trekking For The Kids
Kerry Kennedy and Billy Sell are members of country rock band Double Barrel.
On the 15th of April the boy's head off with Irish entertainer Patrick
McKinley to Mt Isa to start in the S.I.D.S and kids trek heading up to
Darwin and then back to Roma.

For the last 5 years the band has entered a car in the Trek taking them all
over Queensland and now all over the Northern Territory.

Kennedy's affiliation with the S.I.D.S foundation started back in 1999 when
he wrote a song entitled "Single Tear" for the foundation dedicated to his
nephew Cory who passed away in 1991 aged 6 months.

Since then he has been an ambassador for the cause to help find a reason
these babies are dying.

" We have a lot of support in the community both from here on the Gold Coast
and from my home town in Dalby" Kennedy said. "Carmichael Builders in Dalby
have been fantastic, this is the third year in a row they have come on board
with us.

Robina Plumbing (Graham Elton former Dalby boy) have sponsored us for two

As has Sun State Interiors (Burleigh Heads) and the Old Bastards (Burleigh

This year we have 2 new sponsors in the way of Fisherman's Wharf Tavern
(Gold Coast) and Charlton Tyres (Toowoomba)

And a special thanks has to go to Billy Bark for all his mechanical prowess
in keeping the car safe sound and efficient

And to all these businesses we are truly grateful".
