Rainthorpe's and Young Farmers 

We were approached by local young farmers club Harmston and District Young Farmers Club to sponsor their Club shirts in 2017, this was the start of a great relationship with the club. We have since gone on to sponsor and support Harmston by adding 'the flying pig' club logo to the back of the Rainthorpe fleet.
 
We also enjoy inviting the club to the depot every year for a reception by Richard to show the Young Farmers how we transport machinery and how we started nearly 60 years ago. We feel proud to be a part of the local agricultural community and openly support the future of British Agriculture 
 
Breast Cancer Charity Fundraiser

Breast Cancer Charity Fundraiser

In 2014 we were approached by Judi James, asking if we would help her with moving a combine to the start line of her 'epic' fundraising sponsored drive, and also with the supply of an escort vehicle.  For such an important issue, how could we refuse, so our boys were on hand to assist Judi on her journey and support her fundraising event.

Educating Local Children on Road Safety

One of our own drivers suggested that it would be a good idea to work with children in our local community, educating them on the importance of being seen when they are out and about.  We visited our local primary school, and after a short presentation where we highlighted the size of a lorry to the children, and how important they are to our everyday lives, we went to see the lorry close up. 

Children had the opportunity to sit in the lorry and physically experience the difficulty in seeing their peers around the vehicle, and also to understand where the lorry drivers sleep when they are out on the road.  We talked about wearing bright colours and ensuring the driver has seen them.
