Groups share �2,500 after Colyton vintage tractor run

The RNLI and the Royal British Legion each receive �1,200 after record-breaking rally

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.

This year saw 115 tractors take part, with the Rt Rev Bob Evens, Bishop of Crediton, at the wheel of one of the historic vehicles.
