A north-east firm has donated thousands of pounds to support people across the region.
Energy logistics provider Peterson has donated £20,000 to charities, with the money split between Maggie’s and Mental Health Aberdeen.
They were selected as a result of Peterson employees having direct experience of both.
Staff in Aberdeen, as well as the firm’s other offices, held a range of fundraising activities last year.
Peterson selects different local charities each year, and over the past three years more than £60,000 has been raised.
The fundraising effort is part of Peterson’s “Dare to Care” initiative, which aims to support communities and organisations.

The firm’s head of operations Bob Smith said: “I am proud of my colleagues for their commitment to making a real difference in the community.
“These charities were chosen as they deal with issues close to the team’s heart, with some of the staff having experienced support from both of them in the past.”
Maggie’s provides free practical and emotional support to people living with cancer and their families, while Mental Health Aberdeen offers free counselling to young people in challenging situations.
Maggie’s centre fundraiser Jules Goodwin said: “We will use this money to continue to deliver vital support services and a safe place for those affected by cancer.”
