This morning the annual and hotly contested Lead Truck Auction for the Convoy for Cancer Families was won by Holcim Concrete with a winning bid of $21,000.00. This is the second year in a row that Holcim Concrete have lead the Convoy.
Other bids received through the morning on Ryan & Tanya’s breakfast show from Elvin Group, Icon Water, Monaro Mix Specified Concrete and independent truck driver and apprentice plumber Chris Barac, to name a few, took the overall total raised to $131,650.00, including yesterday’s Lead Bike Auction won by Gerald Slaven.
Hit104.7’s Ryan & Tanya had their first experience of Canberra’s generosity with
Tanya saying, “It’s the first time I’ve actually been on-air in a studio and speechless.”
“It was simply an amazing morning.”
This year’s Convoy departs from Copper Crescent, Beard at 10am and follows the Majura Parkway to the Federal Highway with the first truck expected to arrive at Exhibition Park in Canberra at 10:30am.
The finale of the Convoy for Cancer Families includes a family carnival, food stalls and opportunity to see the 400 trucks and 200 bikes up close plus a performance by Shannon Noll. Entry is by gold coin donation and the Cancer Support Group will be taking donations on the day.
