Organisers of the 9th Livingstone Christmas Tractor Run, which is taking place virtually this year due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic, have issued a final reminder to get your tractor entries in.
This famous Tractor Run, one of the largest in Ireland, has previously seen hundreds of tractors in attendance and since it’s inception has raised an incredible total of £463,000 for local charities, including the Air Ambulance Northern Ireland, Southern Area Hospice Services and Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice.
The committee this year are aware of the impact that the current Covid-19 pandemic has had on local communities, and on the income charities normally receive and so they decided they wanted to transform their event into a virtual one in order to continue to help and support the three charities – Air Ambulance Northern Ireland, Southern Area Hospice Services and Northern Ireland’s Children’s Hospice to ensure their critical work in local communities can continue. The online virtual event will also ensure the well-being of the thousands of the usual participants and attendees of the event, which is paramount to the Tractor Run committee.
2020 is a year we will never forget, but organisers want to show that our community can pull together and make sure we get those really important donations to the three charities – whilst also promoting our farming community.
To support the Online Livingstone Christmas Tractor Run you are invited to donate your normal suggested donation fee on the Virgin Money Giving website for the Online Event: https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/ChristmasTractorRun
Once you’ve made your donation email your reference number from Virgin Money Giving donation and a photograph or video of your tractor to the team to be included in the online tractor run video – email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please submit photos and videos by 30th December 2020 to ensure they are included.
This collection of photos and videos will be released on Saturday 2nd January 2021 on the ‘W. A Livingstone & Sons’ Facebook page and on the ‘Online Virtual Livingstone Christmas Tractor Run’ Facebook page. Let’s get behind the event to support these three great charities.
