A five-figure sum was raised in just a few hours for a north-east cancer charity.
The CLAN Jukebox Lunch at the Marcliffe Hotel in Aberdeen boosted the charity to the tune of £16,000.
Around 300 ladies attended the event, where guests controlled the entertainment by choosing their favourite songs to be played.
The money will be used to offer much-needed support to people affected by cancer in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.
A live auction and raffle helped to contribute to the overall fundraising total.
CLAN needs to raise more than £7,000 every day to maintain its services, because it receives no statutory funds.
The charity provides counselling, complementary therapies, support for children and families and social and wellbeing activities.
It supports not only those who have a cancer diagnosis, but also their friends and families.
Chief executive Colette Backwell said: “The lunch is a highlight of CLAN’s fundraising calendar and it was wonderful to see so many people turn out to support our work.”
CLAN Cancer Support is an independent charity with bases in Ballater, Banchory, Elgin, Buckie, Crimond, Inverurie, Lossiemouth, Turriff, Kirkwall and Lerwick.
