An Aberdeen charity has been left counting the cost of the summer floods after their premises was submerged by more than a foot of water.
Somebody Cares, a charity that supports separate drug addiction, homelessness and HIV causes, were the latest victims of the recent bad weather in Scotland which has wreaked havoc on business, sport and tourism.
The Hazlehead-based organisation, which operates out of the former Dobbies garden centre site, has been forced to commence a major clean-up job after many donated items were submerged under 18 inches of water, which devastated the premises.
The staff have worked tirelessly to tackle the problems, but just when they thought they were getting on top of the weekend's deluge, the heavens opened again on Wednesday and dumped around 15mm more of the wet stuff on their office.
Volunteer site manager, Barry Maitland, has been under pressure to deal with an entirely unprecedented situation.
He said: "We can't really put a price on it [the damage], because a lot of the items involved are donated, but this is eating into funds that we just don't have.
"I don't know what we are going to do. This will really push us back. Funding is hard enough to get as it is without something like this happening."
He added: "It's the geography of the building. All the water just runs down to us. We couldn't do anything to stop the flooding - it rose 12 inches in only 15 minutes."
