KEITH Show's summer tractor road run has raised funds for the League of Friends of Turner Memorial Hospital.
The vintage road run took place on May 26, in damp conditions, and raised a total of £500 for the charity – which supplies the Turner Memorial Hospital with things not covered by the NHS.
Entry was £10 for drivers, with around 50 entering.
On top of money raised for charity, £500 went towards the Keith Show itself, which is due to take place on August 9.
The show's vice-chairman Ewan Stewart said: "It was a local run around Keith and Newmill, which lasted four hours with a stop for lunch in Newmill.
"Thanks to everybody that took part, helped and to the women in Newmill for giving us soup and sandwiches on a cold day.
"The money is going to a good local cause and will help provide books, trollies and other things the NHS don't cover.
"We are hoping to make the event an annual thing and choose a different charity each year – but that is uncertain at the moment."
Mr Stewart said plans for the Keith Show are going ahead as usual.
He added: "The show is well on and organisation is well ahead. We are like everyone else – just hoping coronavirus worries will clear up."
