A charitable trust in Moray has made £500,000 worth of donations to other organisations in the north and north-east during the last three years.
To mark its success, the Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation is staging a photographic exhibition at Elgin Library showcasing its work.
Cullen Sea School, the Grampian Hospital Arts Trust, the Highland Wildlife Park and Piping at Forres are among the many groups to have been rewarded.
The foundation was originally set up in 1981 to manage the personal legacies left by the Gordon and Ena Baxter, who started Moray-based Baxters Food Group.
Kay Jackson, the manager of the trust, was thrilled at the progress which had been made.
She said: “This is a significant milestone.
“With over £500,000 donated since 2014 to a variety of good causes, we are delighted to have helped so many people from the north-east to the Highlands and Islands of Scotland realise their goals and make a positive difference in their local communities.”
The organisation is now striving to double the amount of donations by next year.
Ms Jackson added: “We hope to help many more with the ambitious goal of reaching £1million in donations in 2018.
“The Gordon and Ena Baxter Foundation is committed to continuing the Baxter family’s tradition of funding worthy, well-managed causes, projects and charitable organisations.
“I hope you can come and visit the exhibition to find out more about our work.
“Importantly, to help us reach our £1million donation target by the end of 2018, we would encourage charities and communities interested in applying for our March 2017 funding round to visit our website www.gordonandenabaxterfoundation.com and check whether you meet our criteria.
“We look forward to hearing how you are helping your community.”
