The Rotary Club of Inverness hosted their 100th anniversary celebrations last weekend with a black tie event.

More than 150 locals gathered at Kingmills Hotel on Saturday October 30, greeted with a complimentary glass of prosecco.

Traditional live music accompanied the atmosphere on the night.

The welcome drink was followed by a three course meal accompanied with wine, as guests chatted about the history of the club.

A speech was given by Dr John Rankin.

Guests also enjoyed a silent auction which included gifts such as a Porsche test drive, a three day stay in a luxury lodge, and a case of fine wines.

People attended from all four clubs across the Inverness area.

The event raised £4175 for their charity funds.

Alan Nelson, president of the club, said: "The evening was a great success with great fellowship and entertainment."
