A Rosehearty mothers and toddlers group is holding a balloon release fundraiser at the end of August.

The event will take place on August 26 with all 400 balloons and tickets already being sold out.

The balloons were sold at £1 each with funds raised from the balloon release set to help out the group and allow for some much needed new toys to be bought.

Organiser Jenna McRobbie said: “We seriously need some new toys for the group and it will help us get the children a present at Halloween, Christmas and Easter.

“We are very grateful and appreciate Gray and Adams for sponsoring our event and to BOC Aberdeen for supplying us with the helium for the balloons.”

The group sees around 12 mothers come every week and are based in the Church next to Rosehearty Primary School.
