Aberdeen's Glynn Geddie took some time out of his hectic schedule to spread some Christmas cheer to a local charity group.
The 20 year-old teamed up with one of his partners, AB10, to hand out some early gifts in a special visit to Aberdeen's Foyer Marywell Centre.
Aberdeen Foyer is a charity organisation working to prevent and alleviate youth homelessness and unemployment in Aberdeenshire, providing supported accommodation to former homeless and at risk people aged 16-25, alongside a range of education, training, and employment opportunities as well as community health services for young people and their communities.
Geddie, who is currently preparing for the prestigeous Daytona 24hr in January, also staged a question and answer session with various different groups and met participants of the Gateway to Work, Lifeshaper and Lifeskills groups at the Foyer headquarters in the city.
"I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Foyer and it's great to be in a position to be able to put something back into the local community.
"Thankfully I was well received by the programme participants and I appreciate the opportunity they gave me to tell my story. If it can help to inspire even just one of them really go for their goals then it would make everything even more worthwhile."
Harry Buck, Senior Support Worker:
"I would like to thank Glynn for taking the time out to visit the Foyer and of course AB10 for their generosity. The trainees certainly enjoyed the opportunity to be able to speak to him directly and it stimulated an in depth discussion later in the day.
"For The Foyer it is always great when we can introduce some new and interesting subjects to our learning programme."
