ORGANISERS of this year’s Lincolnshire Road Run are on a high after raising almost £500 for Spalding and Holbeach Macmillan Cancer Support.

More than 60 tractors, some from as far away as Durham, took part in the 21-mile event which started and ended in Holbeach St Johns.

The road run took two and a half hours to complete and some of the tractors were displayed afterwards at a vintage air show held in the village on the same day.

Just under £470 was raised and a cheque was presented to Spalding and Holbeach Macmillan Cancer Support treasurer Carolyn Naylor at The Plough pub in the village.

Judy Jeffries, one of the road run organisers, said: “It was a lovely morning and the tractors met at Red Lodge Farm with the kind permission of John Mawby.

“There were many people who came out to support it and we finished off the day in The Plough for a ploughman’s lunch.”
