A VINTAGE tractor and vehicle club from Mid Ulster has pledged to raise vital funds for NSPCC Northern Ireland in a year-long charity partnership.
Tullylagan Vintage Owners’ Association, which covers the Cookstown and Mid Ulster areas, will hold several events in aid of the leading children’s charity.
Upcoming events include a street collection in Cookstown on Friday, May 31, from 2pm to 7pm with a tractor run all afternoon.
The club will also support NSPCC Northern Ireland at its annual show day at Loughry Agricultural College in Cookstown.
Robert Beggs, chair of the Tullylagan Vintage Owners’ Association, said: “We are very happy to be partnering with NSPCC Northern Ireland this year. We will be running fundraising events that will help protect a generation of children.”
Susan Smith, community fundraising manager with NSPCC Northern Ireland, said: “NSPCC Northern Ireland are delighted to be the chosen charity partner of Tullylagan Vintage Owners’ Association for this year.
“The money they raise will enable us to keep local children and young people safe through services such as our ‘Speak Out Stay Safe’ schools programme, our Childline service and our Helpline for adults concerned about a child.
“But Tullylagan Vintage Owners Association are not only changing children’s lives through financial support but also are helping us to raise awareness of the problems and issues facing children and young people today and letting everyone know the role they can play to help keep children and young people safe.”
