IT was all hands on deck for a day of fundraising in Inverness for Poppy Scotland.

Volunteers and businesses were out in force and managed to pull in thousands of pounds for the veterans’ charity.

In the first Poppy Day to be held in the city, more than 120 volunteers took to city streets to sell the commemorative flowers on Wednesday and raise awareness ahead of Remembrance Day this Sunday.
