Bronte Tractor Run raises £500 for Manorlands Hospice
11:00am Friday 19th October 2012 in News
A Reo army truck was among the 30 vehicles that took part in the latest Bronte Tractor Run on Sunday.
The convoy set off from Cross Roads and covered a slightly different route from normal, taking in East Morton, Bingley, Cottingley, Wilsden and Denholme.
There was also – for the first time – a two-mile off-road section, suitable for tractors and 4x4s.
The event finished at Haworth, with pie and peas and a raffle at the Bronte Hotel.
The event raised more than £500 for Manorlands hospice at Oxenhope.
Stanley Turner, for the organisers, said: “It was a nice day, although a bit chilly, and everything went well.
“In addition to tractors and the army wagon, we had Jeeps, Land Rovers, classic cars and even a camper van.
“I’d like to thank Andrew Neale for sponsoring the pies and the Bronte Hotel for its support.”
The next Bronte Tractor Run will take place on Sunday, December 30, in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
