A charity has launched its gift appeal to ensure young people across the north-east receive presents at Christmas.
Instant Neighbour met the Lord Provost to mark the start of the initiative.
It expects to distribute around 7,000 gifts this year to young people, with the scheme running until December 5.
Members of the public are asked to take a gift tag from one of the Christmas trees across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, which will have the name and age of a child to buy a gift for. Gifts should then be returned to a drop-off point.
Instant Neighbour chief executive Sophy Green said: “We simply could not do this without the support of the citizens of Aberdeen city and shire and I want to thank you all in advance for your support.”
