LYME Regis lifeboat crew has received a donation of £1,750 from Colyton Vintage Tractor Run.

The annual event was held on late May Bank Holiday, with more than 150 vintage tractors leaving Colyton and heading through the East Devon countryside via Whitford, Musbury, Combpyne, into Lyme Regis and finishing in Uplyme, where members of the lifeboat crew met those taking part with their own tractor.

Proceeds of this year’s event were split between the RNLI and Axminster Hospital League of Friends.

Lifeboat crew volunteer Seb Cope collected a cheque for £1,750 from the tractor run organisers this week.
