It was more than five years when a small but dedicated group of truck enthusiasts, eager to raise money for various charities, launched the Lowood Truck Show.

August 24 will mark the sixth running of the Iveco Trucks Brisbane-sponsored event, with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Queensland the beneficiary of this year’s fund-raising activities.

Held at the Lowood Showgrounds, the venue is around an hour west of Brisbane along the Warrego Highway.

The totally not-for-profit fund raising event has grown each year from a modest gathering of 40 trucks to the 2018 tally of more than 280 units arriving on the day. The show raised $15,000, which was donated to Drought Angels.

In addition, organisers spend much of the year gathering donations from the transport industry to auction during this event.
