Truckers bring smiles to disadvantaged children

For 25 years since 1986, many truckers around Norwich have participated in the annual trucking convoy to bring smiles to the faces of disadvantaged children.

The 25th East Coast Truckers children charity convoy saw 101 lorries set out from County Hall, Norwich to Great Yarmouth seafront. In each lorry cab was a disadvantaged child enjoying the journey of their lives. 

East Coat Truckers have been bringing smiles to disadvantaged children for 25 years

Leading the convoy in truck number one was Glenn Johnson, who came up with the idea of the charity ride 25 years ago and has led every convoy since.

Mr. Johnson, from Fressingfield, said: “The last 25 years have been a real pleasure and a great testimony to everyone that has taken part.”

The East Coast Truckers became a charity in 2000 and has raised £350,000 for good causes over the last decade as well as the charity children’s convoy.

  • Nice to see hauliers and lorries appreciated for once instead of moaned and groaned about < a lot of people still don't get the fact that if you use it , drive it or eat it a truck more than likely brought it to you at somepoint !!!! Well done East Coast Truckers for all your effort and charity work !!
