Tractors take to the streets for Pilgrims

Posted on 20 May 2013

More than 100 tractors took to the streets of Smarden, Egerton and Headcorn on Sunday in aid of Pilgrims Hospices. The 15 mile route saw tractors of all sizes and shapes, pulling trailers, towing families and having a great day out in the sunshine.

Organiser Mark Wilson said: “Each year we have run this event, more and more tractors take part, growing from only 40 tractors in the first year to 118 today. People from all over east Kent come to take part to raise funds for a charity dear to our families’ hearts.”

Sharon Burberry, Pilgrims fundraising assistant said: “It was a great day out. I was blown away by the sight of all these tractors and trailers driving through Smarden, Egerton and Headcorn. It was a sight to behold and an event for all the family.

“75% of our funding comes from the local community and it is wonderful when the community comes out like this to have fun while raising money for us.”
