An Aberdeen restaurant has served free afternoon tea to elderly people suffering from isolation and loneliness.
Bistro Verde, on The Green in Aberdeen city centre, invited the party of pensioners along to the restaurant.
The event was organised in conjunction with the charity Contact the Elderly, which helps isolated elderly people stay active and to socialise.
Lisa Kelbie, owner of Bistro Verde, ran a competition on Facebook asking people to nominate a group to come along for a free meal, and Contact the Elderly came out on top.
Lisa said: “I felt OAPs are a bit of a forgotten group. They had a really nice time.
“Normally what they do is just go to somebody’s house.
“They all left nice and full and they seemed really happy.”
Lisa said the tea party went so well she was already considering holding similar follow-up events in the future.
