The Enable Scotland Ladies Lunch was held in the city's Grand Central Hotel on Saturday.

The event celebrated the charity's 60th anniversary with a glittering diamond auction.

Comedian and TV star Karen Dunbar hosted the lunch which was attended by more than 250 ladies.

Hazel McIlwraith, Enable's assistant director of fundraising, said: "It's fantastic to see what strong support we have for Enable and the growth in awareness for the charity when in the past disability charities are often overlooked.

"The funds raised will go a huge way to support the thousands of people in Scotland who are in need of our services."
