Medbourne Truck Pull
On Bank Holiday Monday August 26th 2013 a massive fundraising event was held in Medbourne. The Welland Valley Charity Truck Pull Challenge was held to raise money for the son of tragic Drummer Lee Rigby - and also for local community projects in Medbourne. Thousands turned up to the event, and they were treated to live music, guest celebrities, arts and craft stalls and a host of other entertainment.
Teams of 15 had to pull an 8 tonne lorry for a distance of 1 mile. The overall winners of the event were a team of local tradesmen who called themselves "Trades On The Pull". They completed the mile in 12 minutes and 25 seconds!!!
