Have you seen this extraordinary creation?

A farmer has put his best foot forward ahead of the festive season by building a life-size model of a John Deere tractor and plough using Christmas fairy lights.

11,000 LED fairy lights, 8,000 tie wraps and 2 miles of wiring were used for the masterpiece, Fwi.co.uk reported.

Andrew Wilkinson, East Yorkshire aims to raise money for Cancer Research UK, which follows on the back of the success of last year’s charity fundraiser. Andrew’s Christmas light tractor raised over a respectable £3,200 for the charity in question.

It is hoped that the John Deere 6820 with the three-furrow plough and front weight block will spring similar success this Christmas, with a target to raise £5,000.

Tributes

The masterpiece which took four hours to create is a tribute to Andrew’s father David, who died following a battle with cancer.

The large Union Jack flag pictured behind the tractor is dedicated to the grandfather of Andrew’s girlfriend Emma Lycett. Tom Hughes, passed away from cancer last year.
