AN ANNUAL charity tractor run has been held with people still lining the streets despite the bad weather.

The Pendleside Charity Tractor Run, which was held on Saturday August 21, saw 100 tractors drive through villages in its 13th year.

The tractors began their journey at Nelson and Colne College, thenwent to Barrowford, Blacko, Higherford, Barley, Newchurch-in-Pendle before finishing in Fence.

Event organiser Philip Sanderson, 55, said: “As we came out of the college and went over the bridge there was a long stretch of people going into Barrowford.

“It was overwhelming. Everyone was stood at the side of the road waiting for us.

“As we went past the pubs people were outside waiting for us braving the weather.”

A huge range of tractors took part this year, with Philip driving a tractor from 1953, while many decorated modern tractors.

The money raised will be split between Pendleside Hospice and ELHT and Me, with the final total set to be announced next week.

Donation buckets are still in village pubs and a JustGiving page has been set up for anyone wishing to donate.
