Four north-east community groups have been awarded funding from the National Lottery.
A total of £448,000 was handed out across Scotland to a range of community groups and organisations, including several in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.
The most received in the north-east by one group was £10,000.
The cash given to the groups is set to be used for a number of initiatives.
In Aberdeen, Mastrick Community centre was given £5,117 to run a chair-based exercise class, and Skene Square School was awarded £2,450 to work in partnership with Friends of Victoria and Westburn Park to set up an edible garden.
In Aberdeenshire, Stonehaven and District Men’s Shed was given £10,000 to carry out repair work on a derelict beach pavilion with the view to transforming it into a men’s shed.
Meanwhile, Laurencekirk Primary School took home £1,486 to create an accessible remembrance garden in the school that can be shared with community groups.
