AN ANNUAL ploughing match turned in to a record breaking success as more than £6,000 was dug up for Saint Catherine’s Hospice.

The Cayton ploughing day collected a total of £6,300 for the cause; the most ever raised by the event.

Organiser Molly Oakley said: “We were absolutely delighted to have raised so much money.

“Unfortunately it was very cold and windy, but we still had a good turn out.

“All in all it was a tremendous day, which was enjoyed by everyone who came.

“There was something for all ages.

“A huge thank you to everyone who supported the event etiher by coming along on the day or by helping to organise it.

“Everyone was very supportive and that shows in the figures.”

As well as the Ploughing match the event featured a tractor run with 31 vehicles, a vintage tractor and motorbike show, stalls, and tombolas.

There was also face painting, farm animals, and bouncy castles for the children at the event on Saturday.

All proceeds from the event are donated to Saint Catherine’s Hospice.
