Make a Wish

Who is Make-A-Wish?

Make-A-Wish has one simple aim – to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, to bring hope, strength and happiness. Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with serious illnesses.


How did GRASSMEN help?

As a company we raffled our famous Fiat 110-90 and Ford TW-35. Over the course of 18 months we raised an amazing £250,000 for Make-A-Wish!

Saying Goodbye to the Ford TW-35

On the 8th December 2017 we finally put closure on our 18 month project to raise over £200,000 for Make-A-Wish. On this night at GRASSMEN HQ, we held a small tractor run for Kirkinriola Primary School with the intention to raffle off the TW-35 and runner up prizes after the run was complete.

Despite the snow, this was a massive success; we smashed our target for the Make-A-Wish project, and this video contains some of the machines that came out that evening to support our efforts, the draw, as well as the delivery to the lucky winner, an 11 year old from Co. Antrim. This young man bought a ticket at the Highland Show in June 2017, it could have went anywhere but ended up close to home. We hope whatever he/his family chooses to do with the machine that it serves him well in life.

Thanks to all who supported us in our efforts, not only with the charity raffles, but everyone who buys our products, and we hope to raise the bar again in 2018.

We are working on a short series of videos from our week on the Bale Challenge last year - getting owner and dealer perspectives on machines used throughout the challenge.

First up is 'Wee Pete' who drove the Kubota and his own Kuhn baler on the challenge, a machine that took a surprising amount of oil flow and genuinely tested the Kubota. What were his honest thoughts on the tractor now that it's all said and done?

Air Ambulance Northern Ireland


What is Air Ambulance Northern Ireland?

Air Ambulance NI provides the only Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the region. Serious or life-threatening situations can happen to anyone at any time and on average, every single day in Northern Ireland, one individual finds themselves in desperate need of AANI. The charity’s operational helicopter carries a crew compiling of pilot, doctor, and paramedic. They attend some of the most traumatic medical incidents across the province and are dedicated to delivering the very best possible pre-hospital care, both at the scene and whilst transferring the patient to the most appropriate hospital for their specific injuries.


How did GRASSMEN help?

We have supported many events such as tractor runs across the country to raise much needed funds. We take pride that we also hosted the Air Ambulance Northern Irelands first training day in an agriculture setting.


Watch AANI Training day at GRASSMEN HQ

Air Ambulance NI Training Day

This is something a little different. We were delighted to have the Air Ambulance Northern Ireland at Grassmen HQ recently to carry out their first ever training day focused solely on rural scenarios.

What these guys do is simply amazing but the AANI is a charity and they rely on public donations to stay in the air. Hopefully this video will help you to realise just how vital they are to the rural community and if you are interested in finding out more or would like to give a donation then follow the link to visit their website.
