Welshpool farmer kicks off 2,000 mile charity tractor drive

Taking on the mammoth task from her hometown in Tyn y Pant, Welshpool – kicking off the journey at its livestock market – to John O’Groats and Lands End and back, Mrs Bennett has the backing of New Holland which donated a T6.175 for the journey.

 

The journey is all in aid of four charities: the British Heart Foundation in memory of her father, Cancer Research UK in memory of her brother, the Welsh Air Ambuolance and Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institute (RABI).
