Hundreds turn out for Brisbane Convoy for Kids 2015

A SHOW of more than 200 trucks on the weekend just goes to show that the Brisbane Convoy for Kids has the support of the people.

Trucks drove from Heathwood to the Redcliffe Showgrounds with kids in cabs honking horns and waving excitedly at crowds of people lining the streets where they could.
