A charity truck and tractor run has been organised in memory of the late David Herron, a well known man often seen round the vintage scene demonstrating his fantastic blacksmithing skills, who sadly passed away from cancer in November 2018.
His daughter Danna, along with friends Mark Anderson from MA Agri and Jamie Macmillan from Macmillan Training, pictured above, have organised a run in his memory to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, a charity that helped David greatly during his illness.
Macmillan Cancer Support offers a wide range of services and support to the diagnosed person and their family right from they are diagnosed, right through their treatment and whether they are given the all-clear or like David, sadly succumb to their illness, support continues for them and their families. Their services are vital to patients and families living with cancer and funding is badly needed to keep these services going.
The run will be held on Saturday, September 14, gathering from 10am at Nutts Corner Market Grounds and setting off at 1pm for a run, returning to the grounds for a raffle and prizes for best vehicles. Entry is open to all makes, models and years of lorries, tractors, motorbikes and cars, with a charge of £15 per vehicle.
For anyone wishing to watch the run, the lorries and cars will be passing through Crumlin, Lurgan and Moira, with the tractors and motorbikes passing through Crumlin.
