Photo of the Week: Illuminated tractors spread Christmas cheer

Our photo of the week is one of the stunning 200 tractors that took part in a 30-mile-long illuminated tractor run to raise funds for charity.

The run was organised by Jenny and Kevin Clarke for the Addington Fund, which provides farmers with disaster relief, housing, grants for farmworkers on low incomes and supports young entrants.

The tractor run began outside Welshpool livestock market and, along with other activities at the event, helped raise awareness of the charity and raise £7,500.

Jenny said: “Farmers are an essential part of our society, our economy and they play a huge role in keeping us all fed and watered. They also provide employment for people in rural communities”.
