Haddo House Choral and Operatic Society (HHCOS) volunteers gathered for two weekends over the summer break to significantly reduce their large costume store at Haddo.

Many items were no longer usable and those were bagged up and donated to the Anna Ritchie School in Peterhead for their rag collection.

HHCOS officials say they were delighted to have been able to raise £664 for the school.

HHCOS opened the six-day festival of the arts at Haddo which got under way at the weekend.
