North Tyne Truck Run

This year The North Tyne Truck Run will be raising money for the Great North Air Ambulance and Santa’s Little Helpers.

Santa’s little Helpers North Tyne helps local families that are struggling this Christmas with food and gifts for their children.

No parent should have to explain to a child why Santa hasn’t been so we’re stepping in, to provide presents or a Christmas dinner to those families that are need it most. All children deserve to have a Christmas to remember, including gifts and a hot meal, unfortunately some families just can’t afford this now with the cost of living crisis hitting families hard, the price rise in heating and food bills, universal credits being cut and job losses, it has had a devastating affect on families. Your support and donations, no matter how big or small, will be greatly appreciated.

In addition to raising money for charitable courses, this year’s Truck Run will be held in memory of David Lamb who died in January 2023. The 46-year-old had an HGV repair business in Acomb and was a huge supporter of the truck run in its first two years.

Several of Mr Lamb’s customers have now signed up for the 2023 truck run, meaning that there are already 100 trucks ready to go this year, more than last year’s total of 50. Fiona Pattinson, who organises the Truck Run alongside Alex MacLennan and Robert Scott, is delighted that the Truck Run has become an annual fixture in the Northumberland calendar, after initially being unsure how it would be taken by the public.

The truck run is a thank you to the public for putting up with the wagons coming through the villages throughout the year and to raise money for charity as well. We hoped it would become an annual thing [when it first went ahead in 2021] but we weren’t sure how well it would be taken and how well supported it would be by the public.

It’s been massive hit so we’re going to try and build on it every year and possibly add some new things to it every year. It’s great that it’s a yearly thing.”
