A remarkable event that has brought in more than £1million for charity since its inception has celebrated raising a record amount this year. 

Organisers from the Pink Ladies’ Tractor Road Run announced this year’s fundraising total of £201,000 at their annual celebration evening.

Founder Annie Chapman said: “This is a year I'll never forget. 

“We got to our £104,000 and our twenty-year total of one million pounds, but then it became clear that something remarkable was happening.  

Eastern Daily Press: "The money just kept flooding in until we hit the spectacular total of £201,000. 

“There are no words of thanks that seem adequate but, still, I must offer my sincere and heartfelt gratitude to everyone who made our 20th anniversary so very special. 

“And, yes, there will be a road run next year because the research into improved treatment for breast cancer must go on." 

The first Pink Ladies’ Tractor Road Run took place in 2004. 

This year’s collection takes the total raised over their two-decade history to more than £1,097,000, all in aid of Cancer Research UK’s breast cancer appeal.
