Support Matty Hillcoat’s Truckies Day Out

Enjoy a great family day out and help raise funds for a valuable cause.

This fun-filled day includes a range of truck and ute competitions, tractor pull, chainsaw racing, pig racing, vintage machinery display, food stalls, kids entertainment, charity auction and live entertainment by local band Big T & The Backliners.

 

A range of great prizes are up for grabs too for Rig of the Show and Ute of the Show, and there are more than 20 categories for trucks to enter to win.

The event aims to raise valuable funds for SIDS research in honour of local baby, Matty Hillcoat who tragically lost his life to this devastating syndrome.

SIDS is the sudden unexpected death of an infant under one year of age that cannot be explained after a thorough investigation, including an autopsy. It is one of the leading causes of death in infants between one month and one year in Australia and the developed world.

Proceeds will go to River’s Gift, a Geelong based charity at the forefront of world-leading SIDS research, and safe sleep education. Their Unite to SOS (Stamp Out SIDS) programme provides funds for a genetics SIDS research project recently started between The University of South Australia, Adelaide University and River’s Gift.
