Thompson Bros Transport gets second ‘Colour Me Pink’ trailer

  • Posted on Thursday 5th, December 2013.

The second ‘Colour Me Pink’ trailer for Thompson Bros Transport has been completed and will be used to help raise funds for the McGrath Foundation.

According to project co-ordinator, Steven Thompson the new trailer should be able to exceed the original total raised of $230,000. “At this point three years ago with the first trailer we had $120,000 committed,” he said. “We’d like to see it get to $300,000 with this one.” 

The 45-foot curtain-sider was painted in its distinctive pink colour by Merv Thompson, the brother of Harold and Noel Thompson who founded the Dubbo based transport company in 1962. Primary construction has been done by Heath Busch Trailers in Dubbo with support from many individuals and businesses both local and national that have signed up as gold sponsors by pledging $1,650 (including GST) over the next three years.

In addition, Volvo Trucks have made a significant contribution by providing a FH 540 prime mover to connect to the trailer for the first six months of activity. The Volvo will also be wrapped with a distinctive McGrath Foundation pink livery by Rice Graphics.

The ‘Colour Me Pink’ trailer and Volvo prime mover will be a feature display at the 2014 International Truck, Trailer and Equipment Show in Melbourne from 3-6 April. All of the funds raised will go to the McGrath Foundation to assist with its work against breast cancer.
