A historical society is hoping to help its members get in touch with their roots if it manages to snag a share of a £15,000 cash pot.
Torry Memories and Heritage Society, a group based in Provost Hogg Court, gets together once a fortnight to give people a chance to gather memories and preserve the heritage of the area.
It also works to eliminate the isolation of those living alone by encouraging people to get involved and go on day trips to different historical sites.
Pam Swanson, secretary for the group, said this is their first year applying for the CommunitEE Chest after seeing an increase of 200 members in the last two months.
She added: “People on our Facebook page would be interested in family history research and we would need money to pay for the subscriptions to the websites and archives.

“We would also use the money for toner and photo paper for a new printer we recently just bought.
“Sometimes people find photos or articles of their ancestors in the newspaper and we can print it out for them.
“It’s just to be able to provide our members with more information.”
To be in with a chance of landing a share of the £15,000 fund, all organisations who are registered have to do is collect more than 100 tokens from the Evening Express.
Tokens can be collected up until October 6.
