Station Brae was a sea of pink on Saturday night as hundreds of women descended on the town in the name of charity.

Around a thousand walkers turned out for the sixth annual Moonlight Prowl, which has raised more than £460,000 for research into the prevention and treatment of breast cancer at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and the University of Aberdeen, since starting in 2006.

Crowds of walkers and spectators started to gather at the Dalrymple Hall early on Saturday evening to soak up the carnival atmosphere and enjoy the entertainment before the pink-tidal wave set off at 10pm for either a six-mile or 13-mile trek around the town.

Residents lined the streets to show their support while entertainment along the route was provided by local performers Inferno fire troop.

Committee member Margaret-Jane Cardno said: “Saturday’s event was yet another overwhelming success and the committee would like to express their thanks to all those who took part in the walk and those who supported to ladies en-route.

“We hope to break our target of £500k this year and would like to remind ladies to hand in their sponsor money before the end of this month.
