An annual charity ploughing event held in support of The Big C has raised more than £2,600 for the cancer charity.

Tracks charity ploughing is now in its 11th year and was held in North Elmham on Saturday, October 8.

Tractors and crawlers from as far afield as Ipswich, Hertfordshire, and Wisbech travelled to the event.

Many horticultural machines from the local area were also busily ploughing.

And a major attraction at this year’s Tracks was the very rare David Brown DB4 crawler, owned by Neville Websdale, which ploughed for the first time.

Organisers Neville and Sally Websdale said: “The public came in droves of all ages, showing great interest.

“The raffle is always a great attraction and we have made a grand total of £2,603.”

They described this total as fantastic, and thanked their many helpers, “without whom we couldn’t manage the event”.

Tracks will be held next year on October 14.
