Aboyne Mother and Toddler Group, which meets every week at the Community Centre, Aboyne, held a successful food drive on April 10.
After reading about the recent shortages in the Aberdeenshire Food Bank, which covers the Deeside area, the group asked all mums and guardians to bring along food or toiletries instead of paying the usual door fee.
Fiona Graham from the Aberdeenshire Food Bank attended the session to collect the food and provide those in attendance with further information about their work in the community.
Kerry Anderson, Chair of Aboyne Mother and Toddler Group, said: “It was a great success and we also had the Aboyne Co-op donate money towards it.
For anyone interested in attending the group, sessions are held every Friday between 10am and 11.45am. A small fee is payable on the door.
