The Fireworks Against Cancer event that was due to be held in Turriff this weekend will move to an online format.

Organisers had planned to hold the display at The Haughs on Saturday evening but were forced to postpone due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Like many events in 2020 the group has adapted and moved it to a virtual platform.

A special display screening will be shown on the Fireworks Against Cancer facebook page on Saturday evening from 8pm.

The event raises money for north-east cancer charity UCAN and there is an opportunity for people to donate to the event's Just Giving page.

The event organisers said: "We're pretty devastated that we can't help raise funds for UCAN via our annual fireworks spectacular at Turriff this October, but we remain hopeful we can hold the event sometime soon.

"In the meantime, the importance of raising funds for UCAN Urological Cancer Charity remains paramount, and we will be holding a virtual event on Saturday, October 24 at 8pm.

"In addition to watching our special Covid year video, please remember to donate via our Just Giving page."

The group were hopeful that by adhering to restrictions they would have been able to hold the event.

However, it was unable to secure permission from licensing authorities and had to postpone.

UCAN provides help to people and families affected by urological cancers.

The charity has created a centre of excellence in the north-east of Scotland, which spearheads the charity’s activities.

This includes health promotion work and raising awareness of urological cancers; and evaluating new technologies for diagnosis and treatment.

The link to the special display screening will be available on the Fireworks Against Cancer Facebook page which can be accessed here
