Last year's Aberdeen UK Platform Awards dinner raised more than £22,000 for the Help for Heroes charity, organiser CWC Research has announced.
The annual awards dinner, held on 29 September and hosted by BBC newsreader Kate Silverton, raised £22,710 for Help for Heroes.
Some 400 people attending the event contributed £7,570. The sum was matched by lead sponsor Aberdeen Asset Management.
Help for Heroes is a charity formed to help men and women injured when serving in the UK armed forces.
At the dinner Robin Hollington - whose son Richard was the 300th member of the UK armed forces to die from wounds received in Afghanistan - told the audience about the needs of severely injured service personnel.
"Once again this demonstrates that financial services industry people are incredibly generous and keen to support a thoroughly deserving cause," said CWC Research managing director Clive Waller (pictured).
