Vale of Alford young farmers have donated £400 to local charities.

The money has been shared equally between Penumbra Mental Health Grampian and the Royal Northern Countryside Initiative.

The club held a soup and sweet at Lumsden Hall in October after a thanksgiving service in the local church.

Secretary Leanne Keir said: "Thank you to everyone who donated and helped, it was very much appreciated.

"It was a successful event with about 70 people coming after the church service for a bowl of homemade soup and dessert."
