A tractor and bygone rally in Swanton Morley raised £1,000 for bereavement charity Nelson's Journey.
Brian Shutler, Tina Potter and Sid Banham presented a cheque to community funding and marketing officer Sarah Hyde at Smiles House, in Little Plumstead.
Miss Hyde gave them a tour of the house which is the headquarters of the charity and the main centre where it offers one-to-one sessions for children and young people, for them to talk about their feelings and memories of the person who has died, and suggest ways to cope and remember them.
They also offer guidance for parents and carers.
Ms Potter said: 'It was a fantastic opportunity to see the heart of the charity.
