Ellon Ladies Ball committee members presented a cheque donation of £800 to INSPIRE (Partnership Through Life) on Tuesday, March 31.
The Ladies Ball event is a local dinner dance that is held annually on the first Friday in December at the New Inn Hotel.
Its main remit, other than being a great night out for all those who attend, is to raise money for local charities.
The dance is run by a committee of five ladies - Alison Reid, Jennifer Strachan, Alison Bruce, Claire Garland and Claire Grey.
The ladies presented their donation to staff and residents at 2 Carolines Crescent.
Manager of the Ellon INSPIRE house, Alison Young, said they were very happy to be chosen as the cheque recipients.
She explained: “We are all delighted to be chosen, it is nice that the money is coming from Ellon to be used in Ellon, everyone here appreciates it.
“We are hoping to organise a party so we can speak to everyone and celebrate.
“Everyone here enjoys having fun!”
