There is a Charity Tractor Road Run on Sunday 2 October 2016 at Alyth in east rural Perthshire.
The run starts and finishes at the Mains of Creuchies Farm, Alyth PH11 8LG (pictured above) and the organisers are hoping to have a dry day and so intend to travel some 25 miles, however should the weather be wet they do have an alternative shorter route, travelling some 13 miles. So this event will go ahead regardless of the weather!
Organiser Helen Simpson told Heartland FM: “We are hoping to raise funds for Ninewells Children's Ward and Play Centre in Dundee. Sadly our eldest son, Charlie spent several weeks in this ward, earlier this year as he was suffering from Sepsis.
He is fully recovered now but we received outstanding care and attention from the staff both on the ward and in the play centre so we would like to thank them and show our appreciation by raising some much needed funds. Our youngest son, Lough also spent time in the same ward when he was only weeks old, suffering from Broncholitis.”
Helen added: “The tractor run will be followed by lunch provided by the team at our Mains of Creuchies Farm served on the farm for everyone who attends and we are ending the day with a raffle. We have received an outstanding amount of generous donations and gifts from local businesses for the raffle.”
There is an entry fee of £10 per tractor and for all who intend to come along that they please register beforehand.
Please contact Helen Simpson on 01828 632502 or email: email@example.com
“Also when you register we would be most grateful if you could provide some details about the vehicle you are bringing; the make, model, age and registration of the vehicle, along with the age of the driver! This is for a wee competition that we are running on the day” says Helen.
All tractors are welcome, old and new and you don't need to have a tractor to join in. Just come along, enjoy the day, have some lunch, buy some raffle tickets and enjoy the spectacle of tractors!
For those that can't join in on the day but would like to support the fundraiser, you can donate using the Crowdfunding page at www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/charity-tractor-road-run
Donations will help raise money to fund equipment to support patients, as well as helping to provide simple things like books, toys, games and batteries for gadgets.
Helen says: “We thank you greatly for your support and hope to see as many of you as possible on Sunday 2 October 2016 at Mains of Creuchies, Alyth for a 10.00am prompt start. Let's cross everything for a dry day and a good run!
The London-based construction company will deliver the first phase of the Perth Transport Futures Project building a junction and link road for which work will start later in September and is expected to be complete in spring 2019.

We have a vast wealth of experience in delivering significant highway infrastructure schemes across Scotland including locally on the A9, A90 and the M90.”
