Over 50 tractors roll through Tuddenham, Kennett, Molton, Barrow, to help raise money for Cancer Research UK





More than 50 tractors rolled through a number of Suffolk villages to help raise more than £4,000 for charity.

Peter Brown, 83, who lives in Soham, organised the special event in memory of his son Philip, who died from cancer in May 2021.

A total of 52 tractors made their way through a number of villages including Tuddenham, near Mildenhall, Herringswell, Kennett, Molton and Barrow.

Peter, who used to live in Tuddenham for 30 years, said: “Philip was more popular than we realised and he was just a good person who knew everybody and was great to talk to.

“The event was very well supported and it was so nice to see all these people come in his memory.

“It was just absolutely fantastic all-round. Everyone seemed to enjoy it, the children got in the tractors which was great and we were so lucky with the hot weather.

It’s the third time the tractor run has been held following Philip’s death and Peter is eager to do it again in 2025 following this year’s success.

He also expressed his gratitude to members of Lingwood Farm in Tuddenham for their ‘great’ venue where people stayed to chat and enjoy food once the tractor run had finished.
