They have set up stations in store so shoppers can Save a Christmas Jumper, either by donating or taking away free snowy sweatshirts and nativity knitwear.

The initiative will run in more than 50 stores, including those in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire from today.

Lynne Ogg, a Communities Manager at Scotmid said: “We know how expensive Christmas time can be.

"We hope this initiative brings some festive fun to local communities as well as a new lease of life for those tinselly tops.

"We look forward to seeing customers get a merry makeover in store!”

The initiative will be running until mid-December, so shoppers have time to get those holiday knits in for Christmas jumper days.

There are posters in the stores in Torphins, Inverbervie, Laurencekirk and Bridge of Don directing customers to the drop bins.
