The Beadlam Charity Tractor Run, which has raised more than £60,000 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance during its 12-year history, returns on Sunday May 4.

Organisers are hoping to top last year’s effort which saw 216 tractors take part, and members of the public donate a staggering £7,213.

The vintage and classic tractors, as in previous years, will cover 50 miles and pass through 20 different villages after setting off from Beadlam Grange Farm Shop, near Helmsley.

It is hoped the Yorkshire Air Ambulance – depending on weather and call-outs – will be on hand before the run sets off at 9.45am. All are welcome to come and look at the helicopter and the many different tractors.

Mark Rooke, of Beadlam Grange Farm Shop, said: “It is a privilege for us to support the tractor run, and we feel very honoured to host it year after year. As a family, we have unfortunately needed the Air Ambulance, so it is good that we can give something back. I cannot support them enough.”

Anyone interested in taking part in the 12th Beadlam Charity Tractor Run should contact Malcolm and Sally Simpson on (01751) 432645 or Bernard Simpson on (01439) 771668 or email bctrun@yahoo.co.uk
