Local Christian charity Teen Challenge will hold its annual summer party at Sunnybrae, near Fyvie, next month.

The organisation – which helps individuals break free from life-controlling addictions – will host the event on Saturday, August 30.

The charity organises the gathering each year to celebrate transformed lives and to thank its friends and partners for their invaluable support with Sunnybrae.

Since then, the centre’s staff and volunteers have helped around 350 men who have came to the facility to start new lives, which they and their families can be proud of.

At the summer party, guests of all ages will enjoy a host of games and challenges, including a bucking bronco, pony riding and tin can alley.Attendees will also hear from current Sunnybrae residents, who will share their inspiring stories of how their lives are being powerfully turned around.

Area Manager of Teen Challenge North East Scotland, Gordon Cruden, said: “This event is not a fundraiser, it’s our thank you to our supporters so we’d encourage all our friends, and anyone just looking for more info on what exactly we do, to come along and join in the fun.”

Teen Challenge North East Scotland operates Sunnybrae and Benaiah, near Mintlaw, where residents complete the 48-week Teen Challenge recovery programme.
