TRACTOR drivers wearing pink feather boas and balloons took to the roads around the borough on the weekend.

A convoy of 24 decorated tractors driven by women bravely rode out for the annual Lincolnshire Ladies’ Tractor Road Run – all to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness.

Organiser Margaret Bell said she was very pleased with the support given by the local communities – in just the second year of the fundraiser.

“Although it is for a serious cause, there was a fun, carnival atmosphere on the day.” She said. “The sponsorship money is still to be collected but we are hoping to have raised as much as our total of £3,500 last year.”

The convoy of tractors set off from Lowfields Road, Benington, and made their way through a number of villages, including Leverton, Freiston, Butterwick, Fishtoft and Boston, before rested for a picnic lunch break at Butterwick Old School playing field.

After the picnic the ladies took to the roads gain, before making their way back to Lowfields Road.
