St Barnabas Fundraiser Caroline Swindin collects the �1,000 cheque from the Hackthorn Tractor Run organisers EMN-140718-163658001

A 25-mile tractor run on country lanes and farm tracks has raised £1,000 for St Barnabas Hospice.

Organised by Sue and Brian Graves, with the help of 
Peter Pettitt and Steve and Paulena Dunning, the Hackthorn run had 45 tractors taking part.

Sue and Brian have been organising the runs for almost ten years and vary the charities they support.

“We are aware more and more people need and use the services from St Barnabas and we always support charities that help local people,” said Sue.

“We would like to thank everyone who supported and helped us.

“And we would like to also thank all the local folk who let us use their land for the run route.”

Helping to boost the funds raised were an auction and raffle after the buffet after returning from the run.

And going along to collect the cheque was Caroline Swindin, community fundraiser for St Barnabas in West and East Lindsey.

“We are extremely grateful, but staggered at the amount raised at this fantastic event,” she said. “It means a lot to the hospice to have people like Sue and Brian helping to put something back into their community.”
