The North Detectorists hosted the dig at Daltullich in Forres, which was attended by 35 members.

Day1 helps young people to work on their emotional and social skills so they can get the best out of life and build on their growing confidence.

The detectorists found different objects on the day including an array of coins.

One was an Edward I hammered penny dating back to 1279-1307.

Other finds included a Victorian penny and a Scottish turner from 1635.

The detectorists chose to support Day1 as the landowner of the dig site, Mrs Macrae, has a personal connection to it.

The group will return to the same venue next month in a bid to raise funds for MFR Cash for Kids.

Minelab has sponsored the upcoming event and donated a Vanquish 350 metal detector.
