  • 360 tractors travelled from Harrogate to Pateley Bridge and back to Knaresborough.
  • It was to raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

A record amount's been raised from the Knaresborough tractor run.

Over 350 tractors took part in the annual event which was held on Sunday (8 March).

So far, monies generated stand at over £20,000.

And not all money has been counted.

Last year's event raised around £16,000.

Organised by the Knaresborough Young Farmers, the annual event is now in its fourth year.

It's held every year in memory of Mike Spink, who died in an accident in New Zealand in 2017.

The popularity of the tractor run continues to grow and in response, this year's start location was forced to move.

Instead of Knaresborough, the first tractor rolled out of the Great Yorkshire Showground.
