A John Deere 3050 4WD will be auctioned at the Cheffins Cambridge machinery sale on 14th June 2021, with all proceeds to be donated to Alzheimers Research UK.
The tractor was donated by an anonymous client of Cheffins and will be one of the last lots to be sold in the drive-through auction by Bill Pepper, before he retires from the firm at the end of June.
The donation was offered in honour of Mr Pepper’s service to the agricultural machinery industry, with the proceeds gifted to a charity of his choice.
Mr Pepper said: “I have had a fantastic career at Cheffins, however after being at the firm for my entire working life I have decided that now is the time for a new challenge. Whilst it will be incredibly hard to leave Cheffins, the team and all of my regular clients, I am looking forward to being able to spend more time with my family, work on other projects and hopefully travel the world once restrictions allow.
“I am bowled over by the incredible generosity of this client in donating a tractor to the sale and hope that many people will join me in giving extra funds to this amazing charity.”
Cheffins has also set up a Just Giving page for the charity, should any other clients wish to make a donation.
