Farmers will be getting festive and spreading Christmas cheer as they take a magical tractor run through villages in Wrexham and Shropshire to raise money.

Brian’s Christmas Tractor Run started last year and raised thousands for charity. It was so successful that the organising group of Brian Jones, Sophie Mottershead, Wendy Jones and Carys Studley have decided to hold it again this year on Friday 23rd December.

The tractors will be all lit up and decorated as they start and finish at the Hanmer junction of the A525 and A539, traveling through Tallarn Green, Worthenbury, Bangor on Dee, Overton, Penley, Horsemans Green, Hanmer, Bettisfield and Bronington.

Organiser Brian said: “Last year we organised this event in just eight days and it was extremely successful and well supported, so this year we have decided to do it again and I’m expecting it to be even bigger and better.

“There are going to be lots and lots of tractors all lit up and decorated, including one to look like the Coca Cola truck!

“Hope House is a wonderful local charity that supports seriously ill local children and their families and this year we wanted to donate some of the money we raise on the night to them.

“It’s going to be a wonderful night, so please come out and support us and if you are able to give a donation to charity then it would be gratefully received.”

Our fundraiser Cat Dowdeswell said: We are so grateful to Brian and the organisers for choosing to raise money for us this year. Without amazing support like this from our local community, we simply wouldn’t be able to be here for the children and families that really need us.

“I’m sure the night will be absolutely magical!”

The tractors will set off at 6pm and updates on progress will be posted on the events Facebook event which you can find by searching ‘Brian’s Christmas Tractor Run’, where you can also enter a tractor and find out more about the fabulous raffle with some amazing prizes that have been generously donated by local businesses.
