Tractor owners from across the district are expected to turn out for a special event to raise cash for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

More than 50 tractors will be taking part in a 29-mile circular ride through local towns and villages on Sunday April 13.

Businesses have backed the event – first held last year – with £600 in sponsorship.

One of the organisers, Joanne Bulmer, said: “ Everybody’s got on board this time and wanted to do it because the air ambulance has moved its based to Nostell, so everyone sees it regularly.”

The event starts at Nostell Priory estate at 10am and will go through Featherstone – including a stop off at Farmer Copley’s farm shop, where drivers will enjoy a bacon sandwich.

They will then continue through Ackworth, Wentbridge and Badsworth, before arriving back at Nostell.

Entry for tractor drivers costs £10, which goes to the air ambulance.

Mrs Bulmer will also be running a raffle at the end of the ride:

She said: “We’re having a raffle when we get back and people have donated some really good prizes worth nearly £100.

“The White Horse at Sharlston has donated a meal for two.”

Anyone wanting to take part or find out more about the tractor run should contact Deb Pickering on 07534 043436, Joanne Bulmer on 07956 118416, or email laurenfraser4844@hotmail.co.uk.
