Lots of young people on Deeside and Donside were busy raising hundreds of pounds for children in need over the last week.

Banchory Primary held a talent show, managing to raise £697.

They had singers, pipers, guitarists and dancers, but the winning act was a group of gymnasts performing their own unique routine.

They also enjoyed a special visit from the one and only Pudsey Bear, who joined in with the fun, and high-fived hundreds of pupils.

At Aboyne Primary, 11-year-old Lewis Gordon, with lots of help from his mum, Joanne, made over 500 pieces of home baking.

At one of the morning school breaks, Lewis and his mum set up a table to sell their home bakes to the pupils and teachers.

Meanwhile, the children at Alford Playgroup held a Pudsey cake sale on Friday, November 13.

After baking, decorating and taste-testing their cake creations, the little superheroes for the day raised £16.
