Jane joins the Ladies Tractor Road Run

Broadwater’s Buyer for the Horham site, Jane Eaton, donned a fantastically pink get up for the annual Ladies Tractor Road Run on Sunday 7th July.

After some fast-track training on the 1960 David Brown 850 tractor, her route took her from the 100th Bomb Group Airfield in South Norfolk, across the Waveney Valley into North Suffolk.  There was a short picnic break (braving the weather) at Gawdy hall, before passing through the town of Harleston and returning to Thorpe Abbots.

Starting in 2004 as a one off event to raise funds for Breast Cancer research, the Ladies Tractor Road Run has become an annual event raising over £1.1million for Cancer Research UK Breast Cancer Fund.

Along with a donation from Broadwater, Jane managed to raise over £500 – and donations are still coming in.

Jane said “I joined the run at very short notice, due to a cancellation and I was very nervous having never driven a tractor before.  But three lessons later and I soon got used to it.  It was a very emotional day, and I am so pleased to be able to raise such a substantial amount of money, for what is a fantastic cause.  Thank you to all who donated, and I’ll see you all again next year
