Andrea Reed, Head of a fundraising group called “The Gwaun Valley Dragons” organised a Tractor Run this summer in memory of Mr Oswald Harries of Pengegin Farm, Gwaun Valley, who sadly passed away last year of “Farmer’s Lung”.  Oswald’s family had kindly requested that the money be donated to Breathing Matters.

Almost 100 tractors turned up for the Tractor Run on an amazingly sunny day.  Oswald’s grandson started the Run in his tractor and 98 tractors followed him along the scenic Gwaun Valley in Wales.  See the below link for photos of the day.

On 8th September 2012, a cheque for £3,200 was presented by the Gwaun Valley Dragons to the Oswald family on behalf of Breathing Matters.

We would like to thank the Harries family for donating this money to Breathing Matters towards research into Farmer’s Lung.  Thank you too to the Gwaun Valley Dragons for organising such a fun event.
