Del Boy would be proud! Three members of Bakewell YFC will be trundling down from Derbyshire to Torquay in three Reliant Robins painted in tractor colours in a bid to raise cash for Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance.

The three-wheelers have been painted in the colours of John Deere, New Holland and a Valtra tractor, by Richard Eley, Carl Bradbury and Karl Mycock, so should be easy enough to spot on the way to the annual convention.

They hope to make their 271-mile trip in around seven hours, and will be stopping in towns and villages along the way to try to boost the £450 in cash they have already raised.

"It has never been done in Reliant Robins before so we thought it would raise a laugh and raise some cash for the air ambulance, which is a vital service in rural areas. We have CB radio to stay in convoy on the way, but there isn't a lot of room in these cars so it's not exactly comfortable," said Richard Eley.
