A CHARITY event taking place in Chelmorton this weekend will raise money for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance.

Being held at Flatt Farm, the event will take place on Saturday and Sunday and feature a vintage tractor display, stationary engines, a raffle, trade stands and evening entertainment.

On the Sunday morning, from 10am, there will also be a vintage road run in the tractors.

Entry to the event is free, as is camping, and all proceeds will go the air ambulance, which relies solely on donations and costs around £1.7 million a year to run.

Donations of raffle prizes will be accepted on the day and there will also be a vintage and bygones auction on the Saturday afternoon at 2pm. Flatt Farm can be found off Coalpit Lane, Chelmorton.
