Followmont supplies ‘Trailer of Hope’ for Brisbane Convoy for Kids

Followmont Transport will support the Brisbane Convoy for Kids once again in 2023, supplying the Trailer of Hope to assist in fundraising efforts for a very worthy cause.

The Brisbane Convoy for Kids is dedicated to raising funds for children’s charities, with Hummingbird House selected as it’s beneficiary charity for 2023.

Hummingbird House is Queensland’s only children’s hospice, providing specialised paediatric palliative care services to babies, children and young people with a life-limiting condition, helping them make every moment precious when life is short.

Followmont will once again provide the Trailer of Hope for the upcoming 2023 Brisbane Convoy for Kids.

Launching the inaugural trailer in 2019 and following the success of the 2022 B-double, the Trailer of Hope has become one of the most significant revenue generators for the event’s fundraising efforts.

This unique initiative invites individuals, families and businesses to contribute between $20 and $2000, allowing their names or logos to adorn the Trailer of Hope B-double set, which will become a traveling billboard of community support.

Mark Tobin, managing director of Followmont Transport, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership. He says the company is looking forward to once again helping the convoy make a big impact.

“Our team wholeheartedly embraces this event, with a large number of our drivers and staff participating in the convoy itself. The trailers are yet another way we can make a meaningful difference in our community,” said Tobin.

“Last year, it once again became the highest fundraising tool for the event, so we are pleased to play our part in making a difference.”

The Brisbane Convoy for Kids has grown significantly since its inception, with over 650 vehicles now participating in the convoy, cheered on by Brisbane families along the route.

The event culminates in an exciting end-of-route gathering at Redcliffe Showgrounds, featuring a truck show, kids’ rides, a petting zoo, auctions, live entertainment, markets and food stalls.

Dana Browne from the Brisbane Convoy for Kids says Followmont Transport continues to show its passion for the cause. “Brisbane Convoy for Kids would like to thank Followmont Transport for again supplying the B-double for our 2023 Trailer of Hope,” she said.

“The Trailer of Hope is such a unique and special part of our fundraising efforts, allowing individuals, families and companies of all sizes to unite in support for everything we do.”

The new Convoy trailer will continue the tradition of traversing the east coast immediately after the convoy event, delivering for Followmont’s customers – giving the community an opportunity to see the B-double in action on the road.

The 2023 Brisbane Convoy for Kids will take place on Saturday, November 4. Registration is now open for community members to support the Trailer of Hope.
