Ian McBeath

Stars of Wollongong 2022

Area Manager I Bunnings

Meet your local Bunnings legend, Ian who is the Area Sales Manager for Southern NSW/ACT. He spends a lot of time on site working with builders and commercial sales team and when he is not working, this father of four loves spending his time in the outdoors.

Ian is no stranger to challenges having conquered the Kokoda Track in 2007 and riding 500kms last year to support the Tour De Kids. He is taking on the challenge of Stars of Wollongong in honour of his friend who passed away from cancer and to those who have also been affected.

Ian loves to be part of his community and contribute to fundraising for important causes. And while he believes he is a hopeless dancer,  he is ready to swap out his Bunnings apron for a pair of dancing shoes and make the stage sizzle with his performance!

Go get em’ Ian!

Dance Partner


Phoebe Todman

Phoebe has been dancing for 13 years and as a student of Kazzajazz Modern Dance Studio, trained in many dance styles.

Throughout her years of training, she competed in countless Eisteddfods and Dance Challenges and also had the opportunity to attend workshops and auditions taken by some of the world’s leading choreographers.

In 2018 Phoebe travelled to the USA to perform at Disneyland and Universal Studios in Hollywood.

2022 marks Phoebe’s fourth year as a Dancer for Wollongong’s Dance for Cancer and she jumped at the opportunity to help the Illawarra Community once again.
