Following an illuminated Tractor Run, the organisers of the event have presented charities with funds raised.

The event raised an ‘excellent’ £5000, and was organised by the Rotary Club of Inverness Riverside, the Rotary Club of Dingwall and InverRoss Young Farmers.

When the event took place late last December, huge turnouts were seen in the eight Ross-shire towns and villages visited.

The charities who recieved a cheque were the Royal Scottish Agricultural Benevolent Institute (RSABI), FarmStrong and InverRoss Young Farmers Club.

One of the organisers, Alastair MacKenzie said: “At the cheque presentation, there was special praise was heaped upon Scott Macrae of the Young Farmers who had done so much of the practical organisation like finding tractors and drivers and organising things at the showground.

“In addition, appreciation was expressed to the hundreds of people who turned out to see the tractors at the mart, the villages, showground and the football club and who contributed to the excellent sum of £5000 that has been split amongst the charities.”
