Proceeds will go to Embrace FARM and Billy’s Recovery.

Ballycommon Sponsored Ride, a not-for-profit community organisation, along with the agricultural contractors of North Tipperary, are hosting the ‘Christmas Tractors of Nenagh’ on December 21st, 2019.

Now in its second year, the event, which will showcase all types of farm machinery decorated in the best Christmas festive fashion, is non-age specific, according to organisers.

The Christmas Tractors of Nenagh is supported by the Chamber of Commerce, local council and businesses.

The main organiser behind the Ballycommon Sponsored Ride is local North Tipperary man, Albert Purcell.

Albert has been involved with local community fundraising for many years through the Ballycommon Sponsored Ride, a sponsored equestrian ride for all to participate in each March with proceeds going to charity also.

Charities

Proceeds from Christmas Tractors of Nenagh, which is supported by the Chamber of Commerce, local council and businesses, will go to two charities; Embrace FARM, the farm accident support network and to Billy’s Recovery.

Embrace FARM supports those affected by farming accidents, both fatal and serious injuries.

It also offers emotional support and practical advice to families after they very suddenly find their lives changed forever after an accident through its annual remembrance service, residential counselling weekends and support groups.

Billy’s Recovery is the heart aching story of Billy Goulding who, after contracting a virus, was left paralysed.

The funds raised will go a long way in helping Billy’s parents, Eileen and Victor, in providing him with the much-needed support and care as he grows up.
