More than 80 tractors have shown off their Christmas makeovers for a charity event near Lichfield.

The convoy covered a 20-mile route through Hamstall Ridware, Abbots Bromley, Blithfield and Hill Ridware as part of the event.

The Christmas tractor run supported three charities – WaterAid, Staffordshire Young Farmers Clubs and The Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution and has raised more than £3,600 so far.

Nina Yiannoukos-Benton, from co-orgainser of the event South Staffs Water, said:

“It was amazing to be involved in arranging this tractor run.

“We were so pleased at the numbers taking part and to see the smiles on the people’s faces as we drove by, which was wonderful.

“It was so much fun and we raised more money than we expected too.

“We’ve already had people asking if we’ll do it again next year.”

Julia Taylor, county organiser for Staffordshire Young Farmers Clubs, said:

“We were completely overwhelmed by the number of people who came out to support us and give generously in the local villages as the convoy passed through.

“The feedback from the tractor drivers, general public and all those involved has been really positive which is a very good for the agricultural industry.

“We have raised a fantastic amount for the three worthy charities.”
