A school that has raised thousands of pounds for a charity has had its efforts recognised on national TV.
Balmedie Primary School started raising cash for Comic Relief six years ago.
Four years ago they managed to raise around £10,000 and in 2015 they made more than £21,000.
The school raised the most amount of money in the UK and was invited to Downing Street to meet then Prime Minister David Cameron.
Youngsters organised a series of fundraising events over past week in a bid to raise more funds for the charity, and have so far hit £13,000.
And, during the week they received a visit from the children’s news programme Newsround and the BBC Scotland show Timeline.
Lindsay Mckay, depute head at Balmedie Primary School, said: “We have been doing a whole range of things over the last week.
“The kids have been doing so much from a danceathon to a flash mob, the effort has been great.
“The children, the parents and the whole community got behind the Comic Relief fundraising, we even got a large donation from the local garage which was really good.
“It has been a long week but I am happy with all the work that everyone has done to raise as much as possible.”
Lindsay added: “This week has been brilliant, to have Newsround and Timeline come to Balmedie just shows the work we have done over the six years we have been fundraising for Comic Relief.”
A number of other schools and nurseries in the North-east raised cash yesterday and throughout the week for Comic Relief, including Tarland Nursery who managed a total of £600.
At the beginning of the live telethon, which raised £71,308,475, Sir Lenny Henry paid tribute to those affected by the attack on Westminster.
The comedian, who helped set up Comic Relief, was joined on stage by Jonathan Ross as he told viewers: “We want to send our thoughts and love to all those affected by the events in Westminster.
“Tonight is an opportunity to save lives, to reach out in the spirit of partnership and compassion.
“The money you give tonight will make things better for people with tough lives here at home and abroad and your generosity year after year proves how much more there is that unites us than divides us.
“Every donation is a good deed.”
