Festive tractor run to be held in aid of Yorkshire Cancer Research

The 'tinsel tractor run' is set to take place this Saturday (2nd December) in aid of Yorkshire Cancer Research.

Festive tractor run to be held in aid of Yorkshire Cancer Research A festive tractor run is set to take place this Saturday (2nd December) in aid of Yorkshire Cancer Research. Labelled a “tinsel tractor run,” those taking part are urged to decorate their tractors as much as possible. Although nowhere near the size of the Knaresborough tractor run, it's still set to prove a great early December sight. Simon Dickinson, who has been instrumental in organising the Nidderdale tractor run, told Your Harrogate:

“Spoke to Morrisons at Ripon and Boroughbridge, because obviously they’re quite farming orientated, they’ve kindly given us permission to go around the car parks and rattle some buckets. "We’ve got the Yorkshire Cancer Research volunteers with the collection buckets and then basically, I decided it’d be nice to go from Ripon to Boroughbridge, through the villages.”
The event is in conjunction with the West Yorkshire Vintage Club and is set to start from F Tate and Sons Ltd, Larkhill Nurseries on Studley Road in Ripon. Those participating are asked to arrive for 2PM, for a 3PM start and each driver is requested to pay £15, with passengers costing £10 and all monies go to the charity. The entry fee also includes a hot drink and mince pies. The 21 mile route will go through the following locations: 3PM - Leave F Tate and Sons Ltd, Larkhill Nurseries on Studley Road in Ripon. 3:15-3:30PM - Ripon Morrisons 3:50PM - Bishop Monkton 4:20PM - Roecliffe 4:35PM-4:50PM - Boroughbridge Morrisons 5PM - Boroughbridge High Street 5:20PM - Langthorpe 5:35PM - Skelton Passing Ripon Cathedral, past the old deanery, up Allhallowgate, past the bus station and Yorkshire Cancer Research shop, estimated to arrive in Ripon Market Place between 6:15-6:30PM. Simon and those taking part, hope that all the Christmas lights on the tractors will attract plenty of support and raise much needed funds for Yorkshire Cancer Research.
