Tractors of every colour of the rainbow took to the roads in the blazing sunshine recently raising money for Wexford Hospice Homecare.

The convoy of 60 plus tractors left Foulksmills, travelling on back roads to Duncormick and then on to The Rathangan bar where the hungry drivers stopped off for a rest from the tractors for a hour. They were treated to hot food and great hospitality from Michael and staff which was gratefully appreciated. They returned through Wellintonbridge and back to Foulksmills where they were treated to a hot dinner in the Oak Tree bar.

The group would like to thank Larry, Mary and their staff for the great food.

All money raised from this event will go towards Wexford Hospice Homecare and other local charities. This money will be handing over at the Forge Vintage Club Christmas party which will be held early in December. The group would like to thank all participants, the marshals and anyone else who made the day so enjoyable.
