The committee of Glenluce Vintage Tractors are sorry that they are unable to hold the Tractor Rally due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the restrictions of the Government. We apologise to everyone and hope that we can look forward to continued support from all our entrants and sponsors for next year.
2019 RALLY BEATS WEATHER
Despite inclement weather in the lead up to the Rally it went ahead with a change of venue. Thanks to the Clark family allowing the use of the Holm Field, the day was saved....MORE.....
A cheque was presented to Amanda Harris from Cancer Research UK. This was the proceeds when 44 tractors took part in the August Tractor Road Run which commenced at Auchenmalg travelling south through Port William, Glasserton and back to Port William for the midday break. In the afternoon they continued via Mochrum, Culmalzie and back to Auchenmalg via Alticry. The weather was brilliant and a good day was had by all. Ken McKie chairman was overwhelmed with the amount of sponsor money raised and also the many donations and collections received, along with proceeds from Maggie's Kitchen which provided tea, coffee and home bakes at the start and the finish of the event. Including the Gift Aid approximately £5,000 was raised for the charity.
