The event on November 4 attracted a variety of machines ranging from small vintage tractors to modern hi-tech workhorses.

The convoy gathered at Pages Farm on Scratby Road before heading out through Hemsby, Martham, Repps, Potter Heigham, Sutton, Stalham, Catfield, Ludham, Clippesby, Billockby, Fleggburgh, Filby, annd Ormesby.

Donations were collected along the route, with the proceeds split equally between two Norfolk-based charities: Shine, which provides services and activities for children and young people with additional needs or disabilities and their families, and YANA (You Are Not Alone), which offers help and counselling for people in the farming industry who may be affected by stress and depression.

The tractor run was set up by farmer Philip Page, who thanked organisers, volunteers, supporters and people who donated equipment and refreshments for helping to create a “thoroughly enjoyable day”.

“We would like to thank the people from local villages who kindly donated on route, and family and friends and the general public who turned out on the day and gave generously,” he added.
