The Aberdeen Donside MSP joined Northfield Academy pupils in serving up a three course meal, teas and coffees for local pensioners. Talented children from local Primary School Bramblebrae also joined the festivities in providing entertainment in the form of Christmas Carols.
"I was delighted to spend some of my afternoon helping out at the Northfield Community Centre senior citizens Christmas party. I've helped out every year since being elected and it is a great wee community event.
"Pupils from Northfield Academy helped wait on the tables and there were also carols from the pupils at Bramble Brae to entertain everybody.
"It's great that this event is put on to help continue to enhance the community spirit in Northfield."
Local organiser Jacqui Innes said: "The over 50's party went so well. Everyone said that they had a ball. I would like to thank all who helped - our MSP his assistant, the ladies France and Mary from Community Development, Bramblebrae and Northfield Academy pupils singers and servers, the band (booked for next year), Dan our wonderful chef and most of all Sharon Beattie and Louise Morrison. To all well done and a Merry Christmas."
