Seven teams took turns to haul a three-ton lifeboat-tractor in aid of Scarborough RNLI’s £200,000 Supacat appeal on Sunday.

The teams of six paid an entry fee and were sponsored to boost the fundraising effort.

The event, compered by Tony Peers, took place on the West Pier, next to the lifeboat station.

The team which took the least time to pull the tractor a short distance was from Body Complete.

The other teams were South Bay Scuba, Sub Aqua Club, Aprilis, Asquith & Co, Compass Gym and lifeboat crew.

The total raised is not yet known.

The winning team, Body Complete, was presented with a trophy from Val Johnson of Scarborough RNLI.

An appeal is ongoing to try and raise £200,000 for a new launch vehicle for when Scarborough gets its new Shannon class lifeboat in 2015.
