SCOTLAND'S Maggie's Centres have received a £60,000 boost – thanks to thousands of forks.
The charity's year-long Who Gives A Fork? campaign raised that amount money thanks to help from the public and celebrities.
And to further help the charity – which operates two of its centres in Glasgow, near the Western Infirmary and Gartnavel Hospital – the Who Gives A Fork? brand has been gifted from the Glasgow Restaurant Association to Maggie's, which now plans to extend the campaign across the UK.
The campaign saw all the association's 80 member restaurants in Glasgow get involved, hosting events and activities for the charity.
Celebrities such as actors James McAvoy and Gary Oldman , along with comedians Kevin Bridges and David Baddiel and Michelin-starred chefs all donated signed forks that fetched hundreds of pounds at auction.
One signed by actor Ewan McGregor, which was auctioned at a "Final Fork Out" event at the Glasgow Art Club this month, raised £800.
Ewan said: "I thought it was a great concept and a quirky way to raise funds for an important cause.
"So I was more than happy to lend my support by signing a fork."
The campaign was the idea of Anthea Jackson, the Glasgow Restaurant Association's business development manager, and Ryan James, its chairman.
Ms Jackson said: "Maggie's Centres are incredible and inspiring places.
"I know this campaign has raised awareness of what they do to support people and their families who are affected by cancer."
Broadcaster Kirsty Wark, Maggie's patron, accepted a massive signed fork from the association as a symbol of the gift of the campaign brand.
She said: "Who Gives A Fork? is a creative and playful fundraising concept and one that is a perfect fit for Maggie's because the kitchen table is the hub of all Maggie's Centres."
