The Anglesborough Tractor Run takes place next Tuesday, 27th December, and this year there are three beneficiary charities: Liam’s Lift’s, Circle of Friends and Blood Bike South.

Setting off from Anglesborough Hall at 11.30am, Dan Gallahue of Anglesborough Vintage Club is calling on everyone to take part, be it in a tractor, a car ‘or whatever you’re having yourself’.

Everyone on two legs is invited along too to take part in the festive atmosphere and show their support and appreciation, as well as the chance to win some generous prizes in the raffle.

The run will leave the Hall at about 11.30am, and should return an hour to 90 minutes later, where they’ll be welcomed back to base for soup and sandwiches.

Liam’s Lifts is a  a voluntary charity service for transporting patients to hospital appointments, while Circle of Friends is a Cancer Support Centre based in Tipperary Town. Founded by Jennifer Jones Hickey, it opened its doors for the first time at the Station House on the 21st December 2013. Jennifer’s vision for a Cancer Support Centre stemmed from her experiences in the Girls Club in Cork while undergoing cancer treatment.. 

The third charity, Blood Bikes South, is a charity run by a group of motorbike enthusiasts, to provide an out-of-hours free service to public hospitals and clinics in the south. 

Since the tractor run began over 10 years, the Anglesborough Vintage Club have donated over €12,000 to various charities. All are welcome on Monday, and you the public are urged to show your support for the three charities as well as the organisers, the Anglesborough Vintage Club.
