Crowds support Convoy for Kids

Posted: 11am 09 Nov 2021

Big Rigs rolled into Redcliffe Showgrounds on November 6 to raise money for children’s hospice Hummingbird House during this year’s Brisbane Convoy for Kids.

Organisers have hailed the event a success, with more than 600 trucks and five bikes taking part and about 5000 people attending a family fun day at the showgrounds, which included a truck show, free rides, magic shows, entertainment, markets and fireworks.

About 5000 people also watched the convoy along the route as it made its way to Redcliffe.

A spokeswoman says an exact fundraising total is still being calculated, but she believes the event has raised about $60,000 for Hummingbird House.
