An Aberdeen church is encouraging people to support a local charity.
Oldmachar Church in Bridge of Don has launched its Giving for Gratitude During Lent project, which is aimed at people participating in the six-week period up to Easter, as well as those who are not directly taking part.
With a number of people giving up items such as chocolate or crisps, the church has asked if food and toiletry donations can be made to Community Food Initiatives North East (CFINE), which runs a number of projects, including a food bank.
It is looking for tinned meals, soup, baked beans, rice, pasta, cooking sauce and toiletries such as soap, toothpaste, deodorant, shaving products and nappies, which can be distributed in emergency food parcels.
A statement by the church said: “As a church and community we would be able to support CFINE in its work of distributing food parcels to those in need throughout the city over this period and would ask that you consider joining us in this donation.”
The initiative takes place until April 21.
All donations can be brought to the church, which will then be forwarded on to the charity.
