More than £1,500 has been raised by firefighters in Aberdeen during a charity car wash.
The event, held at Central Fire Station last Saturday, saw members of the public bringing along their messy motors for a quick clean.
As a result £1,525.68 was raised for the Fire Fighters Charity.
In a post on social media, firefighters thanked the “local community for their contributions and generosity”.
