AN Inverness church is set to stage a community event to collect food and donations for a local charity.

The Harvest Fun Weekend will take place on Saturday at St Stephen's Church from 2pm-4pm. It will include entertainment for kids and stalls with local produce.

People attending the free event are invited to bring along food donations that will go to the Highland Foodbank, with an all-age harvest service taking place the following day at 10am.

Organiser Val Cantlay said: "We'd like to invite the community around us to join the event for a fun day to help our local food bank.

"There will be bouncy castles for children and music as well."

Those willing to donate food can bring over their donations in the two mornings before the event.

The church will be open tomorrow from 10am-noon to receive donations for the food bank.

Items needed in particular are long-life food items such as UHT milk, tins of potatoes, tomatoes, fruit and ham and breakfast items.

Toiletries are also required.
