We are Proudly Supporting ‘The People’s Truck’
and  i98FM’s Camp Quality Convoy for Kids

For 2 years, C2 Solutions has been a major sponsor and proudly supported McMahon’s Transport with The People’s Truck, and are also on the fundraising committee. We set up their website, social media and automated the donation collections process, which is a massive effort considering the volume of donations.

The People’s Truck in 2014 was lead truck in the convoy raising a $192,000.  And in 2015 we raised a massive $210,000.

This year we’ll be revamping their website (watch this space) and the committee will be making big moves to ramp up the fundraising.

In 2014, The People’s Truck raised a massive $192,000 for kids with cancer. Contribute to 2015!

About The People’s Truck

The Peoples Truck had its first year in 2011. The brainwave of McMahons Transport’s owner, Derek McMahon, the concept allows the general public to buy sign writing space on the side of a truck. Derek ‘hands over’ a truck from his own fleet to the general public; the people of the Illawarra and beyond. It becomes their truck, traveling in ‘Convoy’ to represent them and their support of Camp Quality.

In both 2011 and 2012 the Peoples Truck was the fourth highest bidder in the auction for lead truck, and therefore travelled with the starting trucks of the convoy. This is a sought after position given to those companies/organisations raising and donating the most money for Camp Quality. The Peoples Truck is parked in the reserved dress circle surrounding the entertainment stage at the Family Fun Day at Croome Road, meaning it becomes an attraction for the thousands of people who attend.

Many people who have donated find the truck, search for their names and have photos taken.

For businesses who have donated, it is a wonderful tax deductible form of advertising.

Many people choose to throw coins in a bucket instead of making a registered donation to the Peoples Truck. The money from the ‘cash buckets’ is accumulated and goes towards having the names of the sick children on Camp Quality Illawarra’s roll sign written on the truck.

For the past two years two sick children have travelled ‘Convoy’ in the Peoples Truck. This allows them to experience first-hand the interior of the truck, its engine noise, the all-important truck horn, the UHF radio and to look out at the show of support lining the streets for them. 100% of all money raised by the Peoples Truck is donated to Camp Quality.

McMahons Transport meets all promotional and administrative costs involved in the organisation of the Peoples Truck.
