A fantastic turnout of tractors for a charity road run in Pilling at the weekend helped raise more than £2,000 for St John’s Hospice at Lancaster.

Organised by the Fylde Country Life Preservation Society and local Young Farmers’ clubs, the tractors rode from Harry Horn’s Machinery on Woods Lane, Pilling, through Out Rawcliffe, Hambleton and Stalmine, before heading back to Pilling for a barbecue, and disco.

There was also a raffle and various stalls, and thanks go to all who gave prizes for this.

Thanks too, from organisers to those who took along and rode their tractors and to all who supported the event in any way, as well as to the committee.

The event has been hailed a huge success, despite having been held on one of the wettest evenings of recent times.

A cheque for £2,000 has been presented to hospice fundraiser Anna Scott and the amount is still rising.
