Nuthall councillor Philip Owen has donated £500 to Kimberley Pensioners’ Association.
The money is to be spent on a riverboat trip the group is planning this August.
Cllr Owen’s county council divisional fund helps support local groups.
New members are invited to join the pensioners’ group, which meets on Wednesdays in the town’s parish hall.
