On Sunday 5th November Kelso & Lothian Harvester, a Scot JCB Group company, provided a demo Fastrac 4220 and Valtra T174 which took part in a charity tractor run to raise money and awareness for the Doddie Weir Motor Neuron Disease Foundation.

A magnificent sight of 190 tractors left Thirlestane Castle in Lauder for a tour around the Borders in glorious sunny conditions.

Although the final amount is yet to be announced it is thought the event raised about £20,000. 

 

Doddie Weir is a ex Scotland and British Lion rugby player as well as a very popular Borders farmer who is now suffering from this incurable and horrible disease.
