Moleys tractor run returns to raise funds for Birmingham day centre


"The company I work for, Salutem Healthcare, runs a fantastic day care centre for adults with learning difficulties in Birmingham called Blue Cedars, and I thought it would be great to support them."
Alan Moley Spears, estates manager



Suckley Tractor Club’s annual Moley’s Run returns for its fifth year.

On Sunday 20 October more than 40 vintage tractors are expected to take to the country roads of Herefordshire in a 60 mile roundtrip, raising money towards a new sensory room for Blue Cedars, a specialist day centre for adults with learning difficulties.

Vintage tractor enthusiasts will set out from a local farm on their vehicles dating from the 1930s to the 1980s, before embarking on the journey which will culminate with a ploughman’s feast and jam session at the Cross Keys in Suckley.

Alan “Moley” Spears, estates manager (south) for Salutem Healthcare, who organises the run and after whom it is named, said: “Most local farmers have nostalgic, vintage tractors from a bygone age in the barn. Many are up and running but not used very much as in today’s farming world, tractors are twice the size and four times the power, the implements are that much bigger.

“The company I work for, Salutem Healthcare, runs a fantastic day care centre for adults with learning difficulties in Birmingham called Blue Cedars, and I thought it would be great to support expansion of their already fantastic facilities.”

There is a £10 charge per tractor to participate. For more information, or to register interest in joining Moley’s Run, contact Alan “Moley” Speers on 07562604560 or at alanspeers@me.com
