The Woman of Influence Awards raised £15,655 for Action for Children using a charity auction hosted on iPads.

The iPads acted as digital brochures, allowing guests to take part in a silent auction.

Held at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow, the awards recognised Scottish women that have made an outstanding contribution to society.

Broadcaster Kirsty Wark was named Woman of Influence 2014 and commended for her charity work.

The Woman of Influence Awards has raised more than £1m for Action for Children Scotland since the inaugural event in 2001.
