Sick children in the north-east will be given a boost from the eighth annual Aberdeen Art Fair.

The Beach Ballroom event will include a raffle to raise funds for Charlie House this weekend.

Since launching in 2011, the Aberdeen-based charity has helped scores of youngsters with life-limiting conditions and complex disabilities by providing additional support to them and their families.

From Friday a range of contemporary art, sculpture and photography will be on display at the Beach Ballroom with prices ranging from £50 to £30,000.

Susan Crighton, Charlie House fundraising director, said: “We are delighted to attend this year’s Aberdeen Art Fair.

“Funds raised from raffle tickets available at the event will go to support local babies, children and young people with complex disabilities and life-limiting conditions in the north-east of Scotland.

“Just £10 goes towards the cost of a child attending one of our inclusive activity clubs.”

The fair will be open to advance ticket holders from 6pm to 9pm on Friday, then to everyone from 10am to 5.30pm on Saturday and 10am to 5pm on Sunday.
