Charity John O’Groats to Lands End TED tractor run for MND
Well folks… the time has come for me to let the cat out of the bag so to speak.
After losing our mum in 2007 on her sixtieth birthday to Motor Neurones Disease, I vowed back then that I would try to do something for the charity which offer so much support for those going through the distress of living with this debilitating and cruel disease, and of course the families who have to helplessly watch their loved ones deteriorate.
Many of you are aware that I am still searching for our late grandads Ferguson ted20 tractor, which I first learned to drive at an age of about three sitting on his knee, and that I have fully restored my very own Ferguson ted20 tractor and plough over the last two years.
So without further ado, lets get to it.😃😁…..I will be raising money and awareness for Motor Neurones Disease next year by driving my restored Ferguson ted20 tractor from John o Groats to Lands End.
This is a massive task to undertake by any means, but especially hard for a tractor that will be seventy four years old. It’s a big ask of my family and friends who will be joining me, and supporting me along the journey which will take approximately twelve days to complete covering over a thousand miles. The journey is one that needs a lot of preparation and planning so this is why I am starting now and will of course be updating you all with the progress as it happens. I have full backing from the MND Association and MND Scotland and a link to the justgiving page is below. Thank you. Pete 😃
