Tassie Convoy 4 Kids another huge success

The Tassie Convoy 4 Kids was a big success again this year, raising thousands of dollars for the children’s ward at the Royal Hobart Hospital over the weekend. 

Participants didn’t let the heavy rain dampen their spirits as they decked their rigs out in tinsel for the Christmas-themed event.  

Truckies paid $100 to register and the public then donated money to the truck they wanted to see leading the convoy.  

AG&N Barker came out on top with an impressive $2560 in donations, with Batchelor Civil Contracting following close behind with $2070. 

Organiser Emma Bygrave expressed her gratitude to everyone who attended and supported the convoy.  

“We would like to say a massive thank you to all who attended yesterday and those who supported along the way, especially in the less-than-ideal weather.  

“To all of the wonderful sponsors for their donations. And of course to all who donated money, the generosity is absolutely incredible.  

“Well done to all of the drivers for their amazing efforts in raising money towards their trucks (and getting into the Christmas theme!”
