Last year an event took place to help raise funds for a young boy suffering from neuroblastoma. Alfie’s Convoy and Truckshow returns in 2019, on 8 September at Royal Windsor Racecourse, to continue the fundraising campaign.
Alfie, now aged 16, has fought neuroblastoma three times, having been diagnosed at the age of five. The treatment Alfie needs is not available on the NHS. Organiser Robert Holden tells T&D: “Our first convoy was advertised last year and we secured 80 drivers within 24 hours; it was an unbelievable response. We ended up with 120 trucks taking part in the convoy and truckshow and the event made it onto television – ITV London news.
“The convoy is running again, along with the show, funfair and live entertainment,” adds Robert. “Three American trucks are leading the convoy, with Alfie in the first then his younger brothers following in the other two amazing show trucks. We’ve already secured sponsors this year from amazing companies.”
