A number of community groups are to receive grants following a north-east sport event.
Twelve organisations will get a share of £6,000 following the success of last year’s 150th Aboyne Highland Games in August.
Second Aboyne Brownies and Archway Aberdeen will each receive £250.
Meanwhile £500 will be given to Aberdeen Mountain Rescue, Aberdeen Street Pastors, Aboyne Football Club, Aboyne Gymnastics & Trampoline Club, Aboyne Primary School Parent Council, Mid Deeside Day Centre, Cromar Seniors Association, Glen Tanar Charitable Trust and Praesmohr Nursing Home Residents Amenity Fund.
£1,000 is to be gifted to Aboyne Playgroup.
Aboyne Highland Games chairman Alistair Grant said: “Last year’s 150th anniversary resulted in a large crowd, which put us in a very fortunate position to be able to increase the amount of money we are distributing to good causes in 2018.
“The groups we have chosen mean that people of all ages are benefitting from the continued success of Aboyne Highland Games.”
