Day two of beef and sheep farmer Pauline Bennett’s 14-day 2,129 mile tractor run saw a tea and biscuit stop at Farmers Guardian’s Preston offices on Tuesday (July 10).
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).
Speaking about her challenge, Mrs Bennett, 57, said: “I have always wanted to do a big fundraising event and this year I feel is the time to do it.
“Being a farmer’s daughter and wife I have always driven tractors, and with the comfort of modern day tractors, I opted for this mode of transport.
