Convoy for Kids a success with money raised for families in need

After months of careful planning and hard work, a 600 plus strong contingency of trucks, utes and bikes turned the Gateway Motorway Royal Blue as they journeyed to Redcliffe Showgrounds for the Brisbane Convoy for Kids this Saturday.

Now in its 10th year of running, the Brisbane Convoy for Kids raised over $60k and counting with all proceeds going towards Queensland’s only hospice for children, Hummingbird House.

The day marked another significant event with the Followmont Transport donated Trailer of Hope being unveiled at the Redcliffe Showgrounds, featuring the names of every person and organization who had donated towards the Convoy for Kids. Spearheaded by Followmont Driver Darren Cartner, affectionately known as “Mork”, the Trailer of Hope raised over $60k in donations alone. The Trailer of Hope will now taken across the entire Eastern border raising even more awareness for the Convoy for Kids.

Mark Tobin, managing director for Followmont Transport was blown away by the overall turnout for the event. “It’s a big day by all of our drivers and everybody else who come together to make this work. We need to recognize all their efforts” said Mark.

“It’s days like this that remind you why it’s such a great thing to have so many good people in our family and we’re proud to play our part in helping out communities” said Mark.
