Grey Fergie Challenge Raises Cash for Help for Heroes

A group of students has completed a 2,000 mile charity drive from Dover via Lands End to John O’Groats in a Ferguson TE20 tractor dating from the late 1940s.

The Grey Fergie Challenge team reach Lands End ready for the long drive to John O’Groats.

With sponsorship from Massey Ferguson in the form of drivers’ kits and fuel, the Grey Fergie Challenge saw six friends from Harper Adams University College make the trip to help raise funds for Help for Heroes. Their target is to raise £5,000.

Despite many challenges along the way, poor weather and long hours without sleep, they made the journey in the just two weeks.

Team leader, 19-year-old Sean Nixon commented: “Three of us own Massey Ferguson tractors and we felt that the a little Grey Fergie was an iconic model to undertake the trip.”

“The challenge was definitely a test of mental strength and mechanical ability,” he says. “We would like to thank all those who have donated and all those who supported us and helped us along the way. The website and charity link are still open for anyone who would like to make a donation and help us reach our target.”

    Well done from Chandlers (Farm Equipment) Ltd. we have cycled this trip and it’s a long way to go on a vintage Fergi tractor! Great cause as well. Visit http://www.chandlersfe.co.uk to see what we have been up to with Massey Tractors lately… We will have to think of something good to top this though.
