The organisers of a vintage car rally have opted to help provide funds for the fight against motor neurone disease.
The Irrigation Wonderland Vintage Car Rally, which took to the streets of Griffith in May, have donated their entire proceeds from the event towards the Macquarie University MND Research Centre.
The rally, which saw more than 150 entrants from across the state descend on Griffith and surrounding areas for the four day event, raised $10,000.
Rally director Allan Haggarty said the decision to back research into the disease was a "no-brainer" decision.
"Three of our members had succumbed to the disease over recent years," Mr Haggarty said.
"We didn't have any expectations [about how much funds would be raised]... we were very pleased to be able to contribute."
Mr Haggarty said funds were raised during the event through a raffle and donation buckets and while there are no plans for the rally to return to Griffith in the near future, the state-wide Council of Heritage Motor Clubs was "very impressed" with how the Griffith rally was operated.
The donation from the rally is part of a recent flurry of local support towards the centre, with September's MND Charity Ball also raising $110,000 for the centre.
