Croome Road, Albion Park Rail NSW 2527
The Illawarra’s much-loved charity event, the i98FM Illawarra Convoy is back for its 12th year on Sunday, November 20! Earlier this year, it was announced that region's biggest one day fundraiser would be broadening its focus in 2016 with a greater charitable reach. The event has been rebadged from the i98FM Camp Quality Convoy to the i98FM Illawarra Convoy to reflect its commitment to supporting a range of charities and individuals, including the founding beneficiary, Camp Quality. The Illawarra Community Foundation has since been established with all funds raised from this year’s event being distributed to Camp Quality and a range of other groups and individuals via a submissions process. Join the convoy, or come enjoy the massive Family Fun Day at the Croome Road Sporting Complex in Albion Park where there’ll be plenty of food, rides and live entertainment!...
