In Pictures: Welcome return of Livingstone Tractor Run as rain fails to deter charity fundraiser

The annual Livingstone Tractor Run took place in Armagh on Saturday following disruption in previous years due to Covid.

The hugely popular tractor run, which started back in 2012 by the Livingstone family, made a welcome return on New Years Eve – the last Saturday of the year – with its origins focused on fundraising for the Southern Area Hospice in response to the incredible care they provided to Marina Livingstone in the last few weeks of her life.

This year’s event also paid a poignant tribute to Shane Lappin who died tragically at the age of 30 in June 2020, while working on his new home on the Madden Road Area with his wife Sarah. It was the first in-person Tractor Run since his passing.

Shane had been involved with the tractor run since it’s inception in 2012.

This year’s total will now be added to the already massive previous total of £730,000 raised collectively over previous years. Nominated charities which will benefit from this year’s fundraising are Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice, Air Ambulance NI and Southern Area Hospice.
