A Fraserburgh family have been making key rings for key workers.
Nicola Mchattie and children Logan, eight, and Lana, five, began making the trinkets to keep busy during lockdown and then decided to sell them to show their appreciation for the efforts of key workers.
Logan originally wanted to make them for the midwives at Fraserburgh Hospital for taking good care of his mum, who is pregnant, but their creations have now also proved popular with police officers, carers and the midwives in Peterhead.
And after the police shared their key rings online, the enterprise has been booming – with more than 100 now sold.
Mother-of-four Miss Mchattie said: “It’s something, Logan, Lana and I started doing after I my younger children went to bed. I never expected it to do as well as it has but it’s given us something to do during lockdown.”
Big thanks to Lana (5) and Logan (8) who stay in #Fraserburgh for making these lovely key rings. They are #StayingAtHome and making these for police and other key workers. Much appreciated. #StayHomeSaveLives pic.twitter.com/ynoLx8UTiS

The key rings cost £3 as well as postage if required.
The money will be used to create refreshment hampers for the midwives in Fraserburgh.
