A charity tractor run has raised more than £3,000 for Macmilian Cancer Support.

More than 50 tractors set off from St George’s Hall Complex in Methwold on Sunday,

The convoy of vintage and new tractors wound through Methwold Hythe, West Dereham, Stow Bardolph and Northwold, along country lanes.

The drivers stopped for lunch at Church Farm in Stow Bardolph. They returned to Methwold where they were greeted by family and friends and a representative from Macmilan Cancer Support.

Organiser Annie Bruce said: “On arrival at Methwold a crowd had gathered to welcome us back and again congratulate us on our antics. 

“Freshly made cakes had been made and were on sale for everybody to enjoy.

“We are still awaiting the last few sponsorships to come in, but to date we are sat at an amazing £3,000, proving a brilliantly successful day, and worth annoying the commuters of Norfolk’s roads just a little.”

She thanked her fellow committee members, tractor drivers, marshals and other volunteers who helped to make the event possible.
