A hall in a Moray village could be given a £15,000 upgrade after being short-listed for a funding prize.
Burghead Community Hall is one of several projects which could benefit from the boost as part of an initiative run by the Scotmid chain of grocery shops.
The Community Connect scheme was launched in 2017 and allows members of the supermarket staff to nominate charitable or community groups in their area to be the recipients of a share of £25,000.
One nominee will receive the top prize of £15,000 and there are two runners-up prizes of £5,000 – which is financed by the sales of single-use carrier bags.
Burghead Community Hall is run by a committed crew of volunteers who work hard to improve the mental, physical and social well-being of individuals in the area.
The local group hopes to secure the money to make much-needed improvements to the hall on Grant Street.
Burghead Community Hall secretary, Nan Watson, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted for a Community Connect award.
“Burghead Community Hall is run by a group of volunteers and we are raising funds to enable us to renovate and upgrade it so we can provide a facility which all the community can use and be proud of.”
