ALMOST 70 vintage tractors and vehicles were driven through the Chilterns to raise money for the Thames Valley air ambulance.

The 10th annual Chiltern Vintage Tractor Run took place on Sunday, starting at a field in Fingest in the morning sunshine.

Rev Sue Morton led the singing of We Plough the Fields and Scatter with a choir from the Hambleden Valley Group of Churches before blessing the tractors and their drivers.

The vehicles, some of which dated back to the late Forties, then headed off to Stokenchurch and towards Haddenham before returning.

The drivers, some of them in period farming dress, stopped off for a barbecue lunch at Wycombe Airpark, where the air ambulance landed so the drivers could meet the on-board doctor and paramedics.

There was also a raffle with prizes including a huge cake replica of the air ambulance.

The run raised more than £3,000, meaning that more than £30,000 has been raised since the event began.
