Countdown is on: Brisbane Convoy for Kids 2023

By Tanayah Wakefield

Brisbane Convoy for Kids will return to Redcliffe on Saturday, November 4 to raise money for children’s hospice Hummingbird House, and is expected to be the biggest one yet.

The Convoy from Larapinta to Redcliffe is growing every year, with more truck drivers interested in the ‘lead truck bid,’ which raised $15,000 last year.

Brisbane Convoy for Kids Publicity Officer Dana Browne says this year’s registration for the bid has been outstanding.

“Brisbane Convoy for Kids is growing every year. We are continually blown away by the sheer numbers we receive when registering trucks. A key difference this year is the unbelievable amount of interest we have received for our lead truck bid,” Dana says.

“The lead truck bid is where the truck drivers can register themselves to basically go into a bidding war to be the lead truck. It is a highly sought after position with last year’s truck bid bringing in around $15,000.

“Last year, we introduced the ‘sponsor bid’ option, where a member of the public could donate a bid to whichever truck they wanted to see – namely as lead truck – and this year, we have seen the sponsor bid option become bigger and better than we had imagined possible.”
