SINCE the founder of the Elvin Group died from cancer about 11 years ago, the company staff have been raising funds to get the top spot in the Cancer Support Group Convoy.
The convoy will be held on Sunday, April 2, and after fundraising all year the Elvin Group has a good shot of getting the lead truck.

Elvin Group operations manager Ross Scarman says: “Two of our employees this year went through two major surgeries and are now back on board.”

The general manager, Chris Rutledge says: “As soon as cancer comes up it’s always something that touches home.”
“It always means a lot to us,” he says.
“What the Cancer Support Group does for our community is a big thing.
“Leonie [Tom’s wife and two boys] always comes to where we finish up and thanks the boys.
“They’ve all been so proud to be apart of it.”
