Our supporters RC Baker are bringing back their Christmas Tractor Run for 2020!

Following careful planning in light of the COVID-19 restrictions we very much hope that on Friday 18 December the festive fleet of fairy-lit tractors will be taking a tour around local villages to spread some Christmas cheer and raise money for Katharine House Hospice.

The festive convoy will depart from Spring Hill Farm, Barford St Michael at 5pm and will take to the roads travelling through the villages at the following approximate timings (dependant on traffic!):

  • 5pm: depart from Spring Hill Farm, Barford St Michael
  • 5.05: arrive at South Newington
  • 5.15: arrive at Milcombe
  • 5.25: arrive at Bloxham
  • 5.35: arrive at Milton
  • 5.40: arrive at Adderbury
  • 6.00: arrive at Aynho
  • 6.10: arrive at Clifton
  • 6.20: arrive at Deddington
  • 6.30: arrive at Hempton
  • 6.40: arrive at Barford St Michael
  • 6.45: arrive back at Spring Hill Farm.

RC Baker’s priority is to keep everyone safe, so while we will want you to have fun at this annual entertaining event, we would also urge you to stick to the most up-to-date government guidelines. 

Keep it fun, keep it safe, keep it festive!

We wish to say a very big thank you to RC Baker, who have been running the annual Christmas Tractor Run since 2016 and have already raised in excess of £21,000. RC Baker is a family-run business offering agricultural contracting services in and around Banbury. 

Please note, If the local alert level rises to Tier 3, this event will be cancelled.

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.
