A team of RAF veterans will kickstart a football fundraising drive with a special fixture in Moray.
The air force team will go head-to-head with a Highland League All Stars side later this month.
Organisers are hoping a series of matches, staged over the next year and spread across the country and abroad, will raise £10,000 to mark the centenary of the RAF.
And they are beginning their quest with a contest against the best footballers in the north of Scotland.
The match will rekindle the RAF’s links with the Highland League.
The airmen entered a side in the competition in 1939, but managed just four games before the league was abandoned at the start of World War II.
Money raised from the tour will go towards the RAF Benevolent Fund.
Veterans team manager, Matt Beattie, said: “We hope the money we raise will allow the charity to continue what it does best – helping those less fortunate than ourselves who have or continue to serve in the RAF.
“We are all really looking forward to the challenge of playing against an experienced side and renewing old friendships. “We’re excited about all of the fixtures but a special celebrity game in April is of particular interest – the Army and Navy games are must-win though.”
The match between the RAF veterans and the Highland League XI will be at Mosset Park in Forres on Sunday, August 27 at noon.
Entry is free, but volunteers will be collecting donations.
