Convoys rolling out for kids

THIS weekend will see both the Sydney and Brisbane Convoy for Kids hit the road again.

Brisbane's will depart Heathwood on Saturday and head to the Redcliffe Showgrounds for a family fun day, while Sydney's will leave Huntingwood and head to Olympic Park for a family fun day.

But there's more convoys coming up.

The i98FM Camp Quality Convoy with Marty and Bianca, is back for its eighth year.

Organisers are confident that 2012 will see the Illawarra community again come together to raise funds for Camp Quality Illawarra who help to brighten the lives of kids living with cancer and their families.

Last year's event saw 704 trucks and 728 motorbikes take part in the convoy with a total of $691,710 in funds raised, taking the grand total to nearly $2.18 million dollars since the inaugural event in 2005.

This year's convoy will be held on Sunday, November 18.

It will depart under police escort from the Illawarra Coal's Westcliff Colliery on Appin Rd at 8am and follow a route that will take them down Mt Ousley through Warrawong and past Stockland Shellharbour, then onto Croome Road, Albion Park Rail.

The action continues with a free Family Fun Day at the Croome Road Sporting Complex when the registered motorbikes and trucks begin arriving at around 9am.

The fun day also includes lots of great local entertainment, stalls, rides and activities.

Registrations for trucks and motorbikes is open.
