Cumbria charity truck fair

This show was due to take place this summer but was cancelled. Here’s a look back at the 2018 event for now, and we look forward to the rescheduled event in the future. Organiser and driver Paul Grindley told us “Here in Cumbria we have the Cumbria Charity Truck Fair which is held at H&H Broadway Auction Mart in Carlisle, Just off M6J43, every two years. The event is organised by a group of drivers and raises funds for the Macmillan Cancer charity. The show ran in 2016 and 2018 raising over £35,000 on each occasion and it was due to take place again this year on 18 and 19 July but of course has had to be cancelled due to the virus.just off M6 J43, every two years.

Around 400 trucks, from all over Britain, Ireland, and Europe, pack into the auction Mart yard, along with funfair rides for the kids, musical entertainment, stalls selling all sorts of truck-related items and even demonstrations of radio-controlled trucks in the animal pens and thousands of spectators flock in to take in the sights.
