A local Turriff Academy pupil's bid to provide a defibrillator for her local community has seen success this week thanks to help from a charity.
Olivia Rees lead a fundraising campaign for her community in an effort to help save lives as the area has, at present, no readily accessible unit.
Having set up a fundrasing page in November, donations came in to help, but there was still some way to go before the charity stepped in this week.
A spokeswoman for charity Keirans Legacy said: "This is amazing work from a Olivia in a rural area.
"We have contacted the family and have agreed to donate the defibrillator, outside box and appropriate accessories to the Crudie community.
"Keiran would be stoked that a young person like himself wants to help their local community and we donate their life saving equipment in honour of Keiran to allow lives to be saved in his name and hope that the defibrillator will be installed ASAP."
Mum Annie Rees said "The charity are providing us with the equipment and gifting it to the community which is incredibly generous as the equipment alone is valued at £1600.
"The plan is to install it at Crudie School which we hope to be able to do very soon once the installation is confirmed."
