Colyton event raises £3,000 to pay for two specialist wheelchairs

Proceeds from this year’s Colyton vintage tractor run have paid for two specialist wheelchairs.

Members of the organising committee travelled to Mardon House Neurological Centre at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital recently to present them with £3,000 raised at the event.

A spokesman said: “We want to say thank you to all the marshals who helped on the day. Without them the run wouldn’t be possible.”
