A Easter-themed Soup and Sweet event has been held in Strichen to raise funds for the Ritchie Hall.

As well as a large selection of soups and puddings to choose from, there were also raffles and craft tables for younger visitors.

Held in the hall itself, the event was organised by local residents Wilma Forsyth and Andrea Duncan with the support of the Ritchie Hall Committee.

The committee usually holds two fund-raising events in aid of the hall - which was refurbished recently - each year.

In total, the Soup and Sweet made a profit of £530 in aid of hall funds.

Commenting prior to the start of the event, organiser Wilma Forsyth said: “We’re hoping for a good turnout and we hope people will support the event.

“As well as the soup and sweet we’ve got a craft section for the children.
