The proceeds from Bute Vintage Club’s annual charity rally and road run have been presented to two local good causes.

Donations of £1,350 were presented to the MS Society’s Dunoon and District branch and the Bute Kidney Patients Support Group at the club’s AGM at Kingarth Hotel.

This year’s event attracted more than a hundred vintage tractors and other venerable vehicles to the island on July 11, with a gathering on the Rothesay promenade followed by a round-the-island tour, with many of the tractors pulling trailers full of visiting supporters.
