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.

Thanks to Spearhead for working with us this year with the Make a Wish raffle - they very kindly donated a Destroyer for 2nd place in our raffle on Friday night.
We got the chance to catch up with them in Norfolk where we got to see their flagship model, the TWIGA SPV2 self propelled hedgecutter, which absolutely blew Donkeys mind.
