The finale of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe's week-long Charity Chuckle will raise money for an otter rescue centre on Skye, it has been announced.

The International Otter Survival Fund (IOSF) in Broadford is the only cause outside of the capital to benefit from this year's fundraising effort.

IOSF looks after young otters found orphaned and abandoned in Scotland, and supports world-wide conservation work.

The line-up for Sunday's finale includes Seann Walsh.

Also performing are Romesh Ranganathan, Joel Dommett, Jim Holland and compere Joe Wells.

IOSF's Paul Yoxon said: "We're thrilled that Charity Chuckle are helping us to raise funds to support our work with otters. We hope everyone has a good time on the day."
