Federal Member for Calare, Andrew Gee is encouraging the community to throw their support behind the 2017 Central West Tractor Trek, which will be held over two days on the 23rd and 24th September.
The much-loved community fundraiser will this year support Little Wings – a charity providing free flights and ground transport to patients travelling to and from children’s hospitals in major city centres.
Mr Gee said a record number of entrants will be involved this year as they make the 220km trek around the state’s Central West, visiting the communities of Orange, Cargo, Cudal, Lake Canobolas, Forest Reefs and Millthorpe.
“Now in its sixth year, the Tractor Trek will return bigger and better in 2017 supporting the Little Wings charity, which is a fantastic cause. The Trek is a whole lot of fun and I’m encouraging the community the get behind the event and support them if you can,” Mr Gee said.
“There is lots of comradery on these treks and in fact a couple of years ago, I took a wrong turn out at Canowindra and went off on my own for a few kilometres. Every time I have seen a tractor trekker since, they have not let me forget.”
