Secondary school pupils across the north-east have raised more than £50,000 for charity.
The Wood Foundation’s Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) saw young people from across the region represent causes close to their heart in a bid to secure a grant for their school.
In Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, £56,000 was secured for a range of charities.
Mental health organisations, health support services and charities supporting people living in poverty were the top three causes to receive more than £600,000 of funding this academic year.
Jonathan Christie, deputy UK director at The Wood Foundation, said: “The sums secured by young people for local communities is incredible.
“This is a unique form of delegated grant-making and puts the power in students’ hands, ensuring there’s representation of the causes which matter to them.
“As well as funds, there are a wide range of skills development opportunities for the young people themselves.”
