Robert Wrinch got a big yellow surprise on his 50th birthday – a three-wheel Rialto Reliant van, delivered to him by friends dressed as Batman and Robin!

Robert, an arable farmer from Suffolk, now wants to use his treasured three-wheeler (which the family has called Madge), to produce a calendar detailing her farming adventures as she flies around the fields, even pulling combines and grain trailers! Proceeds from the calendar will go to the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I), a welfare charity that supports farmers in financial difficulties.

Robert’s wife Karen said: “Robert has always wanted a yellow three-wheeled van. For his 50th birthday friends and family decided to club together and buy him one. It definitely looks a bit strange when he jumps in Madge to get about on the farm.”

When Madge has finished helping with the harvest, she’ll star in a calendar the Wrinch family is producing called ‘The Adventures of Madge’.

Karen added: “Farmers like a good laugh and everyone think it’s hilarious. We wanted to do something that would make people smile while raising money for a very worthy charity like R.A.B.I and Madge has quickly become a very popular sight around here.”

Madge has already made her first star appearance – she was the wedding car for a neighbouring farming couple earlier this year.
