Jen – the Pink Digger blog

My name is Jen – welcome to my blog.Jen -pink digger at Warwick Hall

I am a JCB JS220 digger and I have been painted a fantastic pink colour to help raise awareness and money for Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland and Eden Valley Hospice. If you look carefully you can see my name printed on my side.

These photographs of me were taken at the Cumbria Horse Trials held at Warwick Hall, and show me with Victoria’s horse Valdemar or ‘Bobby’ and Ruth Clark.

I will be updating my blog regularly and telling you all about my adventures, and the money I have raised for my charities. You can also look out for me on our Waitings Facebook and Twitter pages.
