Our supporters RC Baker are bringing back their Christmas Tractor Run for 2021!

Following the incredible success of last year's Tractor Run, which raised in excess of an incredible £24,000 for the hospice, we are looking forward to seeing the festive fleet of fairy-lit tractors once again taking a tour around local villages to spread some Christmas cheer and raise money for Katharine House Hospice.

We'll make sure that we add all the details of the route and timings nearer the time so that you can plan your evening's entertainment.

The route

The festive convoy will depart from Spring Hill Farm, Barford St Michael as usual at 5pm and will take to the roads travelling through the villages of South Newington, Milcombe, Bloxham, Milton and Adderbury. After passing the home that this event is all in aid of, Katharine House Hospice, the convoy will continue to Aynho. From here the convoy will turn right to Clifton, pass through Deddington (via the market place) and then rejoin the previous route, travelling to Hempton and back through Barford St Michael returning to Spring Hill Farm.

How your donations will help

Local families are facing their last Christmas with loved ones with a life-limiting illness. By donating to Katharine House, you can help them receive compassionate, individualised care and support so they can make the most of the time they have left together.

“Memories can still be made even in the saddest of times. Katharine House enabled this, and the staff were incredible and offered support in every way.” Jane, patient relative

Our dedicated team of doctors, nurses and support staff desperately want to make every moment matter for people in our community, helping them continue living life after loss, acknowledging difficult times, and remembering happy times too.

Thank you.
