Farmers across the region are revving up their tractor engines for a 40-mile road run in aid of charity.

Members of Beacon Young Farmers Club, the Pocklington and Holme-on-Spalding Moor branch of East Riding Young Farmers, are busy organising their second annual Charity Tractor Run.

The event, building on the success of last year, hopes to attract vintage and modern tractors alike from across the East Riding to raise funds for the clubs chosen charity of the year, Sue Ryder Care Homes.

The run will take place on 24 May, with tractors to register at Wolds Engineering Services on Pocklington Industrial Estate at 9am. The rally starts at 10am, working its way through Allerthorpe, Thornton, Sutton-on-Derwent, East Cottingwith, Ellerton, Laytham, Seaton Ross, Melbourne, Everingham, Hayton, Burnby and Nunburnholme before returning through Pocklington to the Industrial Estate to finish at around 3pm.

The entry fee is £12 per tractor, and the club will have willing volunteers collecting money along the route throughout the day.

For more information on the day or entry forms to take part, please contact Tom Screeton on 07590 475660 or Chris Bird on 07858 078700.
