Moneymore YFC would like to thank all the local farmers and other tractor owners who kindly left the work on the farm to come and support this event and also to everyone who came to watch the tractor run and for their very generous support to the collectors.

The weather was lovely for a run on the tractor and organisers are sure every one of the 219 tractor drivers enjoyed their day.

This year was Moneymore Young Farmers’ Club’s largest ever tractor run.

The total amount raised is well over £4,000 and the club should have a grand total in the coming weeks.
