PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Anyone travelling along the M60 today might have spotted an unusually long line of trucks driving down the motorway. The huge convoy was watched by onlookers who stood on bridges above the road to take pictures and videos of the massive vehicles as they passed. It was for a good cause, with drivers raising money to help the family of Heidi Patterson, a toddler who is due to go through a life-changing operation. Three-year-old Heidi suffered from severe complications at birth, resulting in her being diagnosed with quadriplegic cerebral palsy when she was eight months old. She was later registered blind and suffers from hearing loss.

Her parents Sinead and Steven Patterson, from Walkden, Salford, are raising money to pay for treatment to help their daughter recover after the operation. They want to rent a hydrotherapy pool and hire a physiotherapist to help with her post-surgery recovery and would also like to rent a hyperbaric oxygen chamber to help prepare her for the operation.

He helped to organise a mass convoy of trucks for enthusiasts to enjoy - with people encouraged to donate to Heidi's fundraiser. At the final count, it is thought as many as 300 trucks took part in the convoy, with many vintage and specialist vehicles involved.

"We've just been at Birch Services with all of the trucks going past. People we've never even met were driving, it was just truck after truck. "People have really latched onto it. Truck shows were not something I've ever heard of before but this was great." Fundraising pages for Heidi have generated thousands in donations in the last week and Steven says any extra money raised will be used to buy equipment to help her move around when she gets home.
