Caithness company Ashley Ann stepped in to donate an environmentally friendly rainbow bench to a Thurso primary school after some of its playground furniture had been targeted by vandals.
The bench – made from recycled plastic milk bottles – was handed over to Miller Academy by Ashley Ann's managing director Gavin Bremner, who has a daughter at the school.
Last term, a number of the school's playground benches were damaged badly and one was beyond repair. Police now include the Miller Academy grounds on their patrols.
Head teacher Jacqui Budge said: “We were really disappointed when our playground furniture was vandalised, so it was just lovely when Mr Bremner from Ashley Ann donated a beautiful new rainbow bench from their community fund.
"It is super quality and the children are delighted with it."
Ashley Ann designs and manufactures kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms from its Wick base.
