Almost 400 people attended an award ceremony recognising community heroes in the North-east.
Eight volunteers from across the North-east have been acknowledged at the Margaret E Morrison Spirit of the Community awards.
Inchgarth Community Centre was packed with community and business leaders, as well as elected representatives, to hear the stories of those receiving recognition.
Chairman Paul O’Connor said the event recognises people across the whole city that others haven’t recognised.
He said: “Our Margaret E Morrison Spirit of the Community Awards yet again was a resounding success with 350-400 people in attendance. It was tremendous to see the Lord Provost, Lord Dean of Guild, council leaders, business leaders, the Burgesses of the city, charity sector and the public all under one roof recognising eight tremendous recipients who enrich our communities and city.
“Each year the event goes from strength to strength and has to be one of the most high-profile events in the city’s calendar now given the high profile of our guests from all sectors.”
George Stewart was among those to be recognised for his services to boxing in Garthdee.
Cults’ Lizzie Thomas had her work with the Cults 050 recognised by the community.
Lesley Knowles and Louise Baxter both found themselves applauded for their services to the disabled.
Caircry community centre stalwart Chris Fraser was rewarded for her long service to the centre.
Margaret Vieira was also being honoured for her service to charity, the arts and the communities of Cove and Altens.
Rick Brooks, director of charity TLC, received an award on behalf of the organisation which was set up in Torry in 2003 to help vulnerable and disabled people.
