A much-loved annual festive charity tractor run is making its return this December.

The Clitheroe Young Farmers Club Christmas Tractor Run will be held on Sunday, December 17, raising funds for two charities.

Last year’s event saw more than 130 tractors, covered in festive decorations and lights, which delighted more than 2,500 spectators in Clitheroe and the surrounding villages as they paraded through the streets.

Raising more than £5,000 for their chosen two charities.

This year the youth charity will be raising money for their charity as well as Sepsis UK and there are already 130 tractors booked in for the event.

Setting off from the outskirts of Chatburn at 6.30pm, the tractor run will then make its way around Clitheroe and the surrounding villages.
