An impressive team of farmers led the way in a tractor-ful convoy to mark the final Clap for Carers.

Around 30 combines, quad bikes and more took part in the Thursday evening event, coming together to celebrate key workers one last time.

Drigg Young Farmers organised the convoy, with Martin Rigg leading the trundle – with a big thumbs up and a grin throughout.

“Seeing everyone smiling is just priceless,” he said.

“It’s a great feeling doing it for the spirits of the residents, and knowing we are doing something good for the people that need it – this just shows the good old British spirit is still there.”

Martin, with friends Charlotte Nichol and John Nichol, have organised all past tractor convoys, taking farmers through Drigg, Gosforth and Seascale each week.

And the team has raised a clap-worthy £2,000 for West Cumberland Hospital, with the total continuing to rise.

Also taking part was resident Julie Shepherd, who added: “Drigg YFC is a wonderful club of young people not all farmers and supportive advisory members.

“To be involved in the tractor trundle was amazing. It brought all communities together with our farming community supporting the NHS, and all key workers including ourselves with a coloured rainbow of tractors.

“Well done team DYF and everyone who supported us and all the key workers.”
