Thumbs Up Success for Dorset Farmers Combine Harvester Fundraiser

Judi James

6:55am 13th June 2014

She spent three days driving a combine harvester from London back to Dorset and now she's back.

Judi James, a farmer from Littlebredy has been talking to Wessex FM about her experiences.

She came up with the idea to raise money for Breast Cancer Care - and the donations have come flooding in.  So far she's raised bearly £2,000.

So how did she find the journey?

"We had an awful lot of very good well wishers. A lot of lorry drivers who were beeping and putting their thumbs up and I came back home to find a lot of donations online, which was really kind."

And Judi is already planning her next adventure and her next vehicle.

"I have a second agricultural machinery manufacturer interested in that at the moment.  So well see which way it goes.  But I am listening to various ideas and people are on board. Its opened a lot of doors to things we might be able to dream up."
