The results of an annual charity event that sees women on tractors take over the roads of south Norfolk have seen a large cash boost handed over to a cancer research charity and a milestone figure passed.

The 13th Pink Ladies Tractor Run, which was held in the Diss and Harleston area in July, has led to a cheque for £64,700 being presented to Laura Hammond, the Norfolk and Suffolk representative of Cancer Research UK.

Organised by Annie Chapman, it now means the annual event has raised £526,700 for Cancer Research UK.

Mrs Chapman, from Pulham St Mary, was awarded the British Empire Medal in the Queen's Birthday Honours List in 2014 for her fundraising efforts, which now sees more than 100 women climb into the driving seat of tractors every year and set off from Thorpe Abbotts airfield and also enjoy a picnic at Gawdy Hall Meadow.

Jane Broomhall, a long standing Pink Ladies member, presented the cheque as a very poignant tribute to all women who have suffered or who are suffering from breast cancer.
