Brown and Hurley will rebuild an old trailer and sell it to raise money in the fight to beat cancer.

The NSW-based truck dealership has bought an old Barker curtain-side trailer and will devote time and resources to making it roadworthy again.

The proceeds from selling the trailer will be donated to the Cancer Council’s Relay for Life in Coffs Harbour held from May 29 to 30 next year.

Brown and Hurley’s Steve ‘Strop’ Hutchinson is responsible for the initiative and he says he has been given full support.

"I’ve been thinking about it for a long time and when I approached my employer Brown and Hurley they were 100 percent behind my idea," he says.

Hutchinson hopes to raise about $20,000 from the sale of the trailer and will turn to local and national businesses which deal with Brown and Hurley to help reach the target.

"The way I will do this is to ask our great suppliers to donate some of the parts we need and our employer Brown and Hurley will make time available to its trailer workshop staff to complete the trailer refurbishment," he says.

Hutchinson expects the rebuild to take about six months and is currently organising a team to take part in the relay.

Those interested in taking part in the relay can contact the Cancer Council’s Fiona Foulkes on 02 6659 8402 or click here to find out more information and to register.
