Harleston Lions

Raising money for charity

Since 2004, ladies from around Great Britain have traveled to Norfolk to take part in an amazing fundraiser for Breast Cancer Awareness. The Ladies' Tractor Road Run, organised by Annie Chapman has raised over £275,000 over the past 10 years.

Only women are allowed to participate in this annual event (some of them having never driven a tractor before!).

Wendy Green, driving Gawdy Hall's John Deere is one of around 100 women who regularly take part.


A picnic lunch is enjoyed by the participants and their families each year on the Gawdy Hall meadow.

The 2011 run had over 100 decorated tractors and 'pink ladies' taking part.

As well as the Ladies' Tractor Road Run organised by Annie, Gawdy Hall also plays host to other events such as a sponsored walk organised by the Harleston Lions in 2011.
