A north-east transport museum will be hosting a charity auction next month.
Grampian Transport Museum in Alford will be holding a vintage and classic motorcycle sale at its 35th Motorbike Convention.
The idea was sparked by a Kemnay resident, who asked if he could auction his vehicle at the event and donate the proceeds to help fund a new orphanage in northern India.
Mike Ward, curator of the museum, said: “It soon became clear that others were keen to support the charitable cause and we have agreed to accept a limited number of interesting lots to be sold.
“Not everyone has agreed to donate 100% of the proceeds to the cause but in every case the entry fee and commission will be donated.”
The motorcycle convention will take place on September 9.
It is hoped that there will be around 20 machines involved in the auction.
