A tractor run featuring dozens of vintage machines touring the villages of Buchan raised nearly £3,000 for a lifesaving charity.
The annual Sandy Thain Memorial Road Run is held each October to honour the tractor enthusiast.
A local motoring group launched the event after Mr Thain died from the rare disease amyloidosis in 2014 at the age of 75.
Now Mr Thain’s family have presented a cheque for £2,800 to the Sandpiper Trust to help provide defibrillator cover for rural north-east communities.
Sandpiper trustee Claire Maitland said: “We are incredibly grateful to the volunteers and participants in the Sandy Thain Memorial Road Run who have raised such a fantastic amount for The Sandpiper Trust.
“This is a big year for the Sandpiper Trust as we start our most ambitious project to date with Sandpiper Wildcat to reduce deaths from cardiac arrest in north-east Scotland.”
She added that the funds raised by the memorial run would extend lifesaving cover to New Pitsligo and Rosehearty.
Trust figures show about 370 people suffer cardiac arrest in the NHS Grampian region each year, and on average only 18 survive.
The Wildcat scheme hopes to change that by funding Sandpiper cardiac responders in 50 cardiac arrest “hotspots”.
Volunteers from the trust were on hand to give details of their work when dozens of vintage tractors and cars turned out for the second annual memorial road run in October.
The tractors and classic cars left the Legion Scotland branch in Mr Thain’s home village of Strichen and travelled through White Cow Wood to Maud, New Deer and Cuminestown before returning via Garmond, Balthangie, Bonnykelly and New Pitsligo.
During the inaugural run in 2014, funds were raised for the National Amyloidosis Centre at University College Hospital in London.
More than 50 vehicles took part in the convoy, and the £4,500 raised helped fund a new MRI machine for the unit.
Mr Thain, a former military police officer and Army Cadet instructor, had been treated for the disease at University College Hospital – the only centre of its kind in the UK.
