IT'S time again to pack up the family and go on a road trip to raise money and help disadvantaged kids.

On October 27, the Brisbane Convoy for Kids truck, ute and, this year, bikes, the convoy will be travelling from Heathwood on Brisbane's southside to the city of Redcliffe, north of Brisbane.

From here there will be activities and musical entertainment for the whole family, including the truck and ute show results and auction.

Convoy for Kids started in Brisbane in 1991 under the direction of John "The Ferret" Moran and David Gaudrin.

It has spread throughout Australia due to the passion of John.

This will be the third Brisbane Convoy for Kids since its resurrection in 2010, and the organisers are promising it to be the biggest and best yet.

"We are working tirelessly to make this our best year yet and are excited at the positive response we are getting from businesses and the public alike," vice president Anthony Williams said.

Monies raised will go to benefit Riding for the Disabled in Queensland which assists people with disabilities by interacting with horses through horse-riding, dressage, carriage driving, vaulting and therapeutic programs.

Brisbane Convoy for kids will also donate a sum to TRUST to assist them in their ongoing service to the transport industry.
