Clitheroe YFC Raise over £8000 for North West Air Ambulance

Clitheroe Young Farmers not only lit up Ribble Valley by organising a festive tractor run, but raised a magnificent amount of money for the North West Air Ambulance.

More than 100 vintage fairy-lit tractors chugged through towns and villages in the Ribble Valley just before Christmas.The convoy of festive tractors was greeted by hundreds of people who braved the winter temperatures to line the streets and cheer on the parade. The tractor run was organised by Robert Redmaynes and Roger and Hazel Stansfield, who wanted to create an event which would bring lots of people to Clitheroe ...and they did just that. They also wanted to boost funds for the North West Air Ambulance and they were delighted with the support they received having raised over £8000!
