An impressive cohort of 85 tractors helped Lewdown YFC in Devon raise £1250 for charities Cancer Research UK and Mind.

It was the second year the club has held a charity tractor run and they managed to top last year’s fundraising total by £250. This year saw 25 more tractors getting involved than last. Keen members helped out on the day serving up bacon rolls and homemade cottage pies.

Club Secretary Becky Dennis was determined to start an annual tractor run after taking on the role of secretary back in 2017. She said: “Our members had been saying they wanted to do a tractor run for a couple of years so when I took on the role of secretary I said we would do one – and I stuck to my word and organised it!

“We wouldn’t be able to do this event without the help of our members club leaders and parents so I owe it to all them for getting together and pulling off such a fantastic charity and social event! It will definitely be an event for many years to come”.
