Members of Aberdeen Foyer enjoyed their annual Christmas lunch this week.
The theme was the Wizard of Oz to coincide with the 80th anniversary but organisers also hoped this would take some focus off of Christmas.
Loraine Stephen is service manager for the outreach team, the group she works with designed all of the decorations.
“The lunch went really well – everyone came into celebrate the year and their achievements,” she said.
“Projects like this are so important for this time of year as a lot of people don’t have any family or they aren’t in touch with them, we get them out so they aren’t sitting alone.”
The lunch coincides with the charity’s appeal to give young people a cosy Christmas by raising £1,000.
Cathy Simpson, who works for the project, said: “The campaign will concentrate on young people who have experienced homelessness, it’s about keeping them warm.
“People should get behind the campaign because its our own young people we’re supporting. Local young people who have found themselves in a position where they need help.”
Donating £5 will provide heating for three nights, £10 provides a fleecy blanket and hot water bottle and £25 will provide one to one support to find a job.
Aberdeen Foyer provides a safe home for 52 local young people aged 16-25 who have experienced homelessness in Aberdeen & Aberdeenshire.
