A north-east charity has been awarded a five-figure sum thanks to Children in Need.
The annual BBC fundraiser has awarded Avenue £86,029 to support its work with disadvantaged children and young people.
The money will be used to deliver a counselling and play therapy project over the next three years for those affected after family breakdown by boosting their confidence and self-esteem.
Avenue’s chief executive Elizabeth Wallace said: “We’re so pleased to have been awarded funding from BBC Children in Need which will enable us to provide counselling for the next three years for vulnerable young people in our community.”
Children in Need’s national head of Scotland Florence Burke added: “We are delighted to fund the work of Avenue in Aberdeen and look forward to seeing the difference that this grant will make to children and young people across the city.”
