On Sunday 20th May our Townsville Branch joined the 2018 North Queensland Convoy for the Cure and took out the honour of being the Largest Fleet Leaders for the Convoy. The team at Townsville did an amazing job over the past few months, creating fundraising activities and getting the fleet sparkling and ready for the Convoy.
Reece Lynam our North Queensland Maintenance Manager, represented Followmont to receive the Largest Fleet Winners Award and Ann-Marie Jorgensen, Regional Sales Manager, was recognised for her individual contribution to the event. Ann-Marie received the Inaugural Amy Pedersen Memorial Award, presented to a female within the heavy vehicle industry for their commitment, passion and humility towards positive outcomes and influence to many others.
In total, over $90,000 was raised through the Convoy with proceeds going towards research to help find a cure for childhood brain cancer.
A big shout out and thank you to all staff and their families who volunteered their time and so passionately represented Followmont for such a great cause! Well done team!
