A comedy troupe have raised thousands of pounds for a local charity after hosting a fundraising show featuring their greatest skits.
The Flying Pigs, who have been entertaining audiences in the north-east for over 17 years, held one-off show A Bit of Crackling at His Majesty’s Theatre on July 18 in aid of Home-Start Aberdeen.
Ticket sales and bucket collections on the night helped the comedians raise a grand total of £23,111 for the charity.
Georgette Cobban, scheme manager at Home-Start Aberdeen, said: "This tremendous final total will make a genuine difference to the work of Home-Start Aberdeen.
"We are now one of the largest Home-Start schemes in Scotland and have a waiting list of families who desperately need our support."
The charity, which has been working with communities within the city over the past 28 years, provides vulnerable families with support in their own homes from trained volunteers under the supervision of a small team of coordinators.
Ms Cobban added: "The funds raised from the performance will boost our efforts to recruit and train additional home visiting volunteers, who provide vulnerable families in the city with the emotional and practical support they so badly need."
The Flying Pigs’ Greg Gordon said: "We were delighted to be able to support Home-Start Aberdeen.
"It is so important for people to have access to the kind of support they provide, and we’re thrilled that the evening was such a success."
