Valtra UK & IE are pleased to be supporting RJ & KD Mclean on their venture to raise a massive £100K for charity using the LAMMA special edition wrapped T234 Direct.
A family run business, RJ & KD Mclean consist of mum, dad and four brothers who all work together. Over the last 35 years they’ve managed to build a successful tractor and plant business located in Shaftesbury, Dorset.
“We decided we would like to give something back to charity. We are very much family orientated and love to help people and an opportunity was presented to us at the beginning of lockdown just when all agricultural Shows were cancelled,” explained George Mclean.
“Our local Valtra dealership offered us the LAMMA show tractor and we were lucky enough to buy it.”
During the past few months the tractor has been with the Grassmen, who’ve been out and about with the tractor helping to raise money for the chosen charities. The Mclean family are now planning to get the tractor back over to the UK. With restrictions continuing to lift and ease they are hoping to take it out on the road to visit respite hospices to show poorly children and their families.
The money will be split between four charities – Children’s Hospice Southwest, Salisbury District Hospital Stars Appeal, Julia’s House and Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children.
