An Ellon couple recently organised a Scottish country music event at the New Inn Hotel.

Caroline and John Doherty were behind the event and it raised £3,858 for Cancer Research UK.

The Saturday, June 18 event featured popular Scottish country music band Manson Grant and was attended by over 140 people.

Caroline and John held the event last year as well and would like to say thank you to everyone who helped to organise and attended the event.

The couple will also be selling Christmas wreaths in November and December to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

The money was raised as part of the Relay For Life Peterhead event where teams fundraise throughout the year and come together to celebrate their fundraising during a 24 hour relay event.

This year’s event raised over £200,000 for Cancer Research UK’s vital work.
