More than £18,000 has been donated to community groups in the north-east over the past year.

Aberdeen International Airport has given out £18,755 to 20 applicants in the past 12 months.

Included in the beneficiaries is Dyce Academy, Grampian Pride and North East Sensory Services.

Steve Szalay, managing director at Aberdeen International Airport, said: “We receive applications for everything from canoe equipment to garden sheds but we encourage groups with a focus on young people, the environment or that make a tangible and real difference in their local communities.

“We’re an important company in the Aberdeen city and shire region and are proud to back as many organisations as we can from our community fund.”

Applications for the community funds can be found online at

The next deadline is June 21.
