TMO staff volunteer for Pink Lady Tractor Run

Sunday 7th July 2024 saw the annual Pink Lady Tractor Run with help from TMO staff, all in aid of raising funds for cancer research.
Over 200 tractors took part, raising over £70,000 along the way. Many of the people involved in the event dedicated their participation to lost loved ones or have had cancer diagnosis themselves.

Over the past 20 years the Pink Ladies have raised over £1,000,000 for Cancer Research UK and we were quick to show our support by providing 8x willing traffic management volunteers to help with the smooth passing of the event which sees tractors in convoy pass through many Norfolk towns and villages including Pulham and Harleston and then on to North Suffolk.  Event organiser Annie Chapman explains how the event came about on her page which can be found at

The idea for the run came one November evening when John and I sat by the woodburner mardling over what I might do following my imminent retirement. The discussion revolved round various charity ambitions which, frankly, were out of the question considering my age! Riding across deserts or mountains, even with an organised charity trip were really a little too far fetched. The idea for a ladies’ road run came from John following our ramblings over the achievable efforts for charity we had already undertaken. Belonging, as we did then, to two tractor clubs, The Old Ram and the David Brown (Suffolk and Norfolk branch) we had already shared happy days with fellow members exploring unseen environs of these two counties from the double seat of KBJ.

“Why don’t you organise a tractor road run just for ladies?” suggested John. Why don’t I! The spark of the idea soon grew and I found myself thinking how can I do this, who would come, where would we go, start, lunch, etc. etc. and WHY? Obviously it had to be a charity with ladies in mind. Recently a friend of ours had been diagnosed with breast cancer and this had taken everyone quite by surprise and the awareness of this disease and it’s prevalence in this country were quite an eye opener. It seemed the obvious choice.

We hope to see the ladies again in 2025 as part of our growing social value network and our even expanding event management across East Anglia.
