Over 40 tractors travelled in convoy between Norfolk villages to raise money for charity.
The event - known as a tractor run - was organised by farmer Philip Page, who decided to do something different as he looked to generate funds for breast reconstruction support charity, Keeping Abreast,
At 10am on Sunday, November 19, vehicles met at Pages Farm on Scratby Road before heading through Caister, Ormesby Green, Filby, Fleggburgh, Martham Green, West Somerton, Winterton, Hemsby and then back to Scratby.
Many of the tractors had collection buckets fixed on the front so the public could donate when the fleet passed through their village.
Mr Page said: “My wife has gone through breast cancer so Keeping Abreast is a charity that’s very close to our hearts.
