More than £75,000 has been raised for Cancer Research by Kirriemuir’s Relay for Life, which was held at the weekend.
The relay is the biggest event of its kind in Scotland, with more than 700 people taking part in the overnight event at Kirrie Show Field.
Around 45 cancer survivors joined the teams for the opening lap at noon on Saturday. The 51 teams then continued through the night before they all completed the final lap 24 hours later.
Spirits were kept high with a variety of musical entertainment from local bands as well as the Scottish Police and Community Choir.
From midnight until 6am a host of quizzes, bingo and a beetle drive helped to keep participants awake.
Voluntary chairman Keith Hopkins said: “It has been another fantastic success and the biggest relay Kirriemuir has ever put on.
“At the end of the relay, everyone went into the circle and sang We Are The Champions and Auld Lang Syne.
“Some teams are still organising more events to add to the final total.”
At the conclusion of the relay, volunteer vice-chairwoman Rhona Guild set off on her epic 780-mile solo bike ride around all the relay towns in Scotland to raise more money for Cancer Research UK.
Before she left she was presented with a card wishing her good luck from Olympic champion cyclist Sir Chris Hoy.
Her cycle over the next week will add at least £4,000 to the amount raised.
