No less than 58 tractors travelled the sunny 30-mile route around the Kelso area, making the annual event a real spectacle for onlookers.

And, this year, the money raised will be heading to Glasgow Children’s Hospital.

Organiser Ross Palmer said: “We raise money for a selected charity each year, and last year it went to the Royal Highland Education Trust (RHET).

"This year, as one of our former members had a child who received excellent care at the Glasgow Children’s Hospital, we decided to send it there.”
