Special Rigs for Special Kids provides an unforgettable experience to those kids who have special needs.

This Sunday [31.8.14], 250 working rigs (large trucks) will take 350 kids and their families for a unique journey through parts of Dunedin and Mosgiel, starting at and returning to the Edgar Centre Portsmouth Drive. A barbeque, food and drinks have been arranged for the end of trip – that means catering for about 1400 people at the Edgar Centre on the day!
