Express your ‘elf on the 19th December 2019 by joining the RC Baker Ltd Charity Christmas Tractor Run!
Move over Coca-Cola, it’s time to spread the Christmas cheer by decorating your tractor with fairy lights and all things festive! Whether it be a Rein-John-Deere, a Merry Massey, a Festive Fendt or a Jingle Bell JCB, we want to light up the local streets with our evening Tractor Run and raise some money for the Katharine House Hospice.
If you would like to join us with your tractor, simply sign up using the booking form on the left or call the office on 01869 338307 to secure your spot in the Christmas convoy. It is £15.00 per tractor to take part which is payable by cash on the evening of the event.
Please note that to take part you will need to sign up in advance and will need to be able to get to Spring Hill Farm no later than 4.15pm for a prompt start of the tractor run at 5pm.
