Dozens of volunteers from Moray distilleries have gathered at a town centre park to help create a haven for children.
Armed with paint brushes and tools about 30 employees from Chivas Brothers joined the efforts to improve St Rufus Park in Keith yesterday.
Nearby residents are striving to buy £30,000 worth of outdoor equipment for a gym and wooden trail to attract more youngsters to the area.
Yesterday employees from the Speyside and Miltonduff distilleries painted and put up new fences as well as a basketball hoop on the pavilion.
Staff pitched into the effort as part of the firm’s contribution to national volunteers week.
Jim Kirk, who works at Chivas Brothers’ Miltonduff Distillery, explained that the cause had a special place in his heart.
He said: “It’s amazing to see all of the hard work that’s gone in to making St Rufus Park great again.
“I live nearby and it’s really important for us to have a fun and safe green space to enjoy the great outdoors. A lot of us volunteered last year so it’s fantastic to come back and help improve it even more.”
Gail Smith, chairwoman of the St Rufus Park Regeneration Group, added: “The ongoing support is very much appreciated.
Currently we are working hard to apply for funding which is taking up all of the group’s time so the support is a very welcome boost for us.”
