Bradford Telegraph and Argus: The tractors set off in Keighley The tractors set off in Keighley

Around 55 tractors, cars and vintage vehicles took to the streets for the annual Christmas Bronte Tractor Run today.

The convoy wound its way along a picturesque 24-mile route through Bronte Country and raised a total of £1,555 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

The vehicles set off in the morning from Colin Appleyard Cars, in South Street, Keighley, and stopped at the Grouse Inn, Oakworth, for coffee and mince pies.

They held a collection in Main Street, Haworth, then finished the run at the Bronte Hotel in Haworth for lunch.

One of the organisers, Stanley Turner, said: “It has been a really good day, it’s been fabulous.”

He said despite a spot of rain as they set off from Keighley, the day brightened up and overall they had been lucky with the weather.

He thanked all the participants and those who donated money, prizes or their hospitality for the drivers.
