A campaign to raise £1m to help maintain the Piper Alpha disaster memorial gardens in Aberdeen has been launched.
The 1988 North Sea oil platform tragedy saw 167 men die, the world's worst such incident.
A statue and the memorial gardens are a major feature at Aberdeen's Hazlehead Park.
Service solutions company Sodexo said the Pound for Piper aim was to raise £1m by 2013.
