The fourth annual fundraiser, Wellsford Lions Roaring Truck Show 2019, was held at the Wellsford Centennial Park on 24 February

With a turnout of more than 60 trucks along with classic cars and tractors and equipment from the CablePrice and Truck Stop Whangarei branches, the combination made a great spectacle for the general public and all of the trucking fraternity who participated to enjoy a great get-together.

What started out as a bleak morning turned into great weather, with live music playing all day and various trade stalls and displays to view many with fantastic giveaways. The Lions food tent certainly looked after all the appetites. Of special note were the mussel fritters, which were enjoyed in the relaxed atmosphere, making for a most enjoyable day.

The day concluded with great prizes and proceeds of some $9000, which was raised for the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust, with the Wellsford Lions Roaring Truck of the Show being awarded to Dean Carter of DN Carter Ltd for their 2019 Kenworth K200.
