11th annual Tullamore Christmas tractor run launched



THE annual Tullamore Christmas Tractor Run is to aid Dochas, the Offaly Cancer Support Group again this year.

Over the past ten years the event has raised a massive €300,000 for cancer services in Offaly and nationally.

The run is one of the highlights of the Christmas scene locally and will take place on Friday, December 28.

As always participants in the tractor and classic car event will assemble in Market Square from 10am onwards before setting out on the run which will take in Ballydaly, Wood of O, Kilmurry Cross, Rathdrum, Ballycommon, Clonmore, Springfield and Cappincur before returning to town.

That evening an auction and social will take place in the Old Harbour Bar. All items will be gratefully accepted for the auction and to donate please contact PJ Lynam at 086 2571254.

Other fundraising activities organised by the group include a cake sale on Friday, December 7 in the Bridge Centre, bag packing on December 11 in the old Dunnes Stores, Church Road and the sale of raffle tickets on Monday, December 23 in the Bridge Centre
