Spaldings Proud to Sponsor Lincolnshire Farmer Running London Marathon
On the 22nd of April, Craig Williamson of Williamson’s Farm based in Gainsborough will be running the London marathon. Farmer Craig has already completed the London marathon in 2017, in a great time of 3 hours 48 minutes, however, this year he is challenging himself even more.
This year, Craig is running the marathon in a hand-made tractor costume. The tractor he will be running in is a scaled down version of a Massey Ferguson 565, which is one of the first tractors his farm ever bought.
As keen supporters of the local farming sector and charitable causes, Spaldings, who are based in Lincoln, have chosen to donate £1000 to help Craig with his run. All the money raised by Craig will be donated to The Lincolnshire And Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance Charitable Trust.
Nigel Whelan, Marketing Director for Spaldings commented “We are thrilled to be supporting Craig with his run, we recognise the importance of building strong relationships with the local agricultural community and helping to support the hard work that farmers do. Everybody at Spaldings is wishing Craig the best of luck on the 22nd.”
As of the 10th of April, Craig has already raised £4,306. To make a donation, please head to Craig’s JustGiving page at: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/craig-williamson4
