A CONVOY of tractors and other vehicles took to the roads for charity.

Drivers covered a route of more than 20 miles around the Worth Valley.

The 17th Bronte Tractor Run, held yesterday, was in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

More than £1,600 was raised.

"It was a really good day and although it was cold the weather was kind to us," said Stanley Turner, for the organisers.

"We were pleased with the turnout. We had more than 60 tractors, plus some Land-Rovers and even a fire engine!

"We had to take a bit of a diversion at one point, where the road was being dug-up, but everything went smoothly.

"I'd like to say a big thank-you to everyone for their support – all those who took part, donated or sponsored us."

The run started from the Colin Appleyard garage in Halifax Road, Keighley.

Participants broke for coffee and mince pies at the Grouse Inn, Oldfield, before heading on to Haworth.

After travelling down Main Street, the convoy made its way to the finish at the Bronte Hotel, where a stew was served and there was a raffle and tombola.

Two representatives of the air ambulance also attended to talk about the charity's work and thank the event organisers.
