Air Ambulance NI were delighted to have received a fantastic £49,142.

Amy Henshaw, Area Fundraising Manager for the charity had commented, ‘We are forever grateful to the wonderful people behind this annual event. It takes a lot of time and effort to organise such a huge tractor run and we are sincerely grateful for the hard work that goes in each year. We sincerely thank the Livingstone family, Mr Ben Sergeant, the tractor run committee and the many supporters for their incredible support year in and year out. These fantastic funds will allow our helicopter and medical team to reach critically ill patients and deliver life-saving interventions across Northern Ireland.’

We are delighted to be able to continue to support the charities.  We owe particular thanks to those behind the tractor run, the unsung heroes, including the many friends and supporters who help with the organising and do so many things to ensure the tractor run is a success, without you all, it would not be possible – thank you.”
