Britains launch pink Valtra for Breast Cancer awareness month

Britains, Europe’s oldest specialist in creating scale farm model collectibles, is turning its Valtra pink this October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

 Following the success of the pink customised Valtra Unlimited T Series in 2018, the limited-edition authentic 1:32 scale model replica will launch to market with £1 from each sale going to Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now.

 Lisa Gilmour, Head of Regional Community Fundraising at Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now, said: “We are delighted that TOMY and Britains have chosen to support Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now with the sale of this pink tractor for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Thanks to the generosity and commitment of companies like TOMY and Britains we are able to continue to fund impactful work across the UK, which will make such a difference to the lives of those affected by breast cancer, now and in the future.”

 In April, Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now came together to create the UK’s first comprehensive breast cancer charity. The money raised through sales of the pink Valtra will help the charity fund life-saving breast cancer research and life changing support for those affected by breast cancer.

With only 7,500 tractors available, the Pink Valtra is a replica of the full-size machines from the Finnish manufacturer and is constructed from die cast metal and plastic. Packed with lots of innovative features, including a sturdy AGCO engine for bulletproof reliability, a removable T Series cab, a working steering wheel, an A-frame front hitch and 9” SmartTouch screen that puts Valtra Guide, U-pilot headland management and tractor control at your fingertips, the tractor is suitable for both indoor and outdoor play.

 Not stinting on detail, around the back of the Pink Valtra there is a detachable double bale lifter to carry two pink bales around the farm. Simply, press the button on the tractor to drop the fork and release the bales.

 Pink Valtra, RSP £34.99, suitable for kids and collectors aged 3 years +
