LRSN launch 'a shining beacon of hope and support' at the Lincolnshire Farming Conference 22 Feb

Peacock and Binnington, one of the premier new and used agricultural machinery dealers in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire have wrapped a Massey 7716 in LRSN branding in support of the charity’s work helping farmers and rural folk in Lincolnshire who face tough times.

The LRSN tractor will be launched at the Lincolnshire Farming Conference at the Lincolnshire Showground on the 27h February, to showcase LRSN’s services around the county.

LRSN supports farmers who are finding it difficult to cope with stressful situations such as debt, repossession, poor physical or mental health and the breakdown of relationships. The charity operates across Lincolnshire and seeks to reach individuals or families who are often isolated and hard to reach through a combination of helpline, outreach drop-in points and through partnership referrals. The support provides a tailored mix of advocacy, signposting and practical and emotional assistance until the client’s problems are resolved and they are able to cope on their own. 

Sophie Dunn of LRSN said “We were thrilled with Peacock and Binnington’s idea and offer to wrap a tractor in LRSN branding and thank them for such an endorsement of our work by supporting us with this. The tractor looks fantastic and will highlight the charity’s profile and valuable services we give to those farmers and farming families in Lincolnshire that are facing problems in their lives.”

The tractor launch is the first of many events this year where the tractor will be displayed for LRSN. It will highlight the practical and emotional support available for Lincolnshire’s farming and rural communities and will be an opportunity to learn more about the charity.
