A Ryedale farmer will pay tribute to his beloved uncle when a Tractor Road Run returns at the end of the month.
And Paul Hudson is looking for as many people as possible to join him on the fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support when he leads a convoy of tractors around the Yorkshire Wolds and Valley on Sunday May 25.
It will be the third annual run organised by Mr Hudson.
“We are raising money for Macmillan this year in memory of my uncle, Arthur Croft,” he said. “He was from Duggleby and he was a keen vintage tractor and vintage ploughing enthusiast, and he raised lots of money for lots of different charities over the years. Sadly uncle Arthur died from cancer last year but had absolutely wonderful support from the Macmillan team at Scarborough Hospital.”
Despite his ill health, Arthur joined his nephew at last year’s run, describing it as “one of his best ever days.”
Paul said: “I asked him if we were doing it again this year which charity we should support, and without hesitation he said Macmillan. I’m honoured to be able to organise this again this year in his memory, and I hope that we can raise as much money as possible for the charity which really did make such a fantastic difference to him.”
