ORGANISERS of Colyton’s vintage tractor run have ploughed more money into worthy causes.
This year’s event was another record breaker and enabled them to give away some �2,500.
The two main beneficiaries - the RNLI and the Royal British Legion – were presented with cheques for �1,200 each.
The money was handed over at a ceremony at the Colyton Peace Memorial Playing Fields with Wendy Cummins receiving it on behalf of the lifeboats and Ralph Cox collecting the cheque for the RBL.
