Father Christmas lead a convoy of old farm vehicles delivering presents to North Walsham War Memorial Hospital on Sunday.
The annual trip from Bacton is organised by Norfolk Classic and Vintage Tractor Club.
A trailer was filled with presents and tractors decorated with tinsel and holly to create a festive spectacle
Club leader Keith Robinson said: 'To see the smiles on the patients faces is lovely. We are bringing kind thoughts and Christmas spirit and it is very appreciated. It is a difficult time to be in hospital and I hope this brings a little pleasure.'
Patient Michael Gibson, from Sutton, said: 'This was very generous and a nice surprise. Fingers crossed I will be home for Christmas and will wait to open the presents until then.'
