Twenty-two vintage tractors will trundle more than 500 miles across Britain and Ireland this April to raise funds for a children’s cancer care charity.

The tractor run will start in London on Sunday April 24 and finish six days later in Cong, Co Mayo.

The brainchild of the Mayo-based Extreme Tractor Runs group, the event aims to raise €100,000 to support the building of a Daisy Lodge in Cong, Co Mayo.

This is a therapeutic centre for families with children affected by cancer.
