East Coast Truckers

We have a wonderful charity it East Anglia called "The East Coast Truckers".

The charity's aim is to give disabled, underprivileged or fostered children memorable days out
and their parents a well-deserved day off. The main event of the year is the Children’s Convoy,
on August Bank Holiday Sunday, where a convoy of about 90 trucks leaves Norwich with the children and drives them to Pleasurewood Hills amusement park in Lowestoft. They spend the day there and have a picnic tea then they return to Norwich via Great Yarmouth seafront where 1000's of people cheer them along.

It is a fantastic day out and Sam has been with them on this day 3 times. This is the truck Sam & I went in last year :-

They also arrange several other events during the year, and today Sam was invited to go with them to Swaffham Raceway to watch the banger races. I went with him too and he really enjoyed the mini bus trip and all the racing.
