Since it started the Tractor Run has raised £69,000 for Katharine House
The fairy lit convoy raised over £23,000 in December
The convoy of fairy lit tractors that toured the villages to the south of Banbury before Christmas raised over £23,000 for the Katharine House Hospice.
That means since the event started the Tractor Run has raised an amazing £69,000 for the hospice.
This was the sixth year of the event, which is organised by RC Baker Ltd. Over 100 farm vehicles joined the convoy back in December, including one driven by Kaleb Cooper, one of the stars of the hit TV show Clarkson’s Farm.
A spokesperson for Katharine House said: “We were completely blown away by the support and the incredible efforts of so many people for the RC Baker Tractor Run.
“Thanks to RC Baker and all the sponsors, tractor drivers and everyone who came along and donated.”
The event was dreamt up by Jennie Steenkamp from RC Baker. On hearing the news of the massive amount raised since the first Tractor Run Jennie said: “I’m speechless – that’s absolutely brilliant.
“I’d like to thank the tractor drivers who’s decorations were better than ever this year. There’s also an amazing team of helpers behind the scenes who make the event happen to thank and the local community who come out and support it.”
The Tractor Run is set to return in December this year with the date yet to be set.
If you haven’t done so yet you can still make a donation here.
