The event, which will be held in the grounds of Portlethen Academy and Bourtree Park, has once again been organised by local children’s charity, Befriend A Child, which provides a befriending service to disadvantaged and vulnerable children in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.

There will be a host of different stalls on the day selling a range of products including jewellery, handbags, gifts, sweets, toys, home-baking, ice creams, hot food and much more.
