Banchory Lions are running their annual Giving Tree event.
There will be a Christmas tree, decorated with nearly 90 labels, near the Morrisons store exit until Sunday, December 4.
On each is the gender and age of a local child who, without the generous help of the community, would not get a present this Christmas.
People are asked take a label, buy an appropriate present and take it unwrapped, but with enough gift paper, to the reception desk at the Burnett Arms Hotel or Banchory Museum (open Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays), or call Banchory Lions to arrange collection.
