A stunning 136,820 was raised for Cancer Research UK following a hugely successful Relay for Life in Arbroath.
The event took place over 24 hours at Arbroath Cricket Club following months of planning and fundraising.
Relay for Life chairman Ian Angus praised everyone who took part and hailed the community’s generosity following the staggering total.
He also said the amount raised could be even higher as more money is still to come in.
The event got under way with a minute’s applause in honour of the Tacoma surgeon who founded Relay for Life, which has raised nearly $5 billion worldwide.
Dr Gordy Klatt died at the age of 71 in August and more than 420 competitors who took part in Arbroath were also invited to dedicate an extra candle bag in his memory.
Arbroath policeman and Commonwealth Games bowling gold medal winner Darren Burnett started the survivors’ lap.
Cancer survivors then walked the first lap of the course, cheered and supported by members of the community.
Mr Angus said: “We have had a emotional rollercoaster of a weekend at Relay For Life.
“We went into the weekend having attended the funeral of our treasurer Morag Alexander.
“Morag was a much loved and respected member of the local community. We are dedicating this year’s relay to Morag.”
