The Great NZ Tractor Trek 2018
Support this very special cavalcade of vintage tractors, jeeps & trucks as they travel the country raising funds & awareness for Hospice.Nationwide
12 February - 09 March 2018
When Phil Aish's dearly loved wife Janice died a year after being diagnosed with cancer, Phil organised a cavalcade of vintage tractors, jeeps and trucks to trek 2,000km from Bluff to Cape Reinga. The Great NZ Tractor Trek of 2016 raised over $100,000 for Hospices across the country, and captured the hearts of people across New Zealand.
And in 2018, Phil and his friends are doing it again!
"The unbelievably caring and compassionate people at Hospice made it possible for me to simply be there for my wife of 48 years - to sit by her side and hold her hand", says Phil. "The genuine kindness, understanding and patience of everyone at hospice never diminished, and they were equally caring of me and my family. This trek is a promise to my darling wife and a legacy to those who cared for her".
Hospices receive funding from the Government, however each year they must raise over $45 million from the community to ensure hospice services remain free of charge.
100% of the funds raised during The Great NZ Tractor Trek 2018 will support the work of New Zealand hospices. If you would like your donation to go to your local hospice, simply mention them in the comments section.
