Twenty charities and community groups have been awarded Our Dynamic Earth's Golden Ticket, giving them unlimited access to the five-star visitor attraction for one year.

The announcement, in time for Christmas, is the third of its kind, following two successful years of the community programme.

Charities in the Edinburgh and Lothian region were encouraged to apply for the annual pass, which was offered to senior groups, as well as charities working with carers, disadvantaged and disabled children and families.

Catriona Cardie, marketing director of Our Dynamic Earth, said: "The response to this year's call for charities has been heart-warming, and we are pleased to announce 20 very worthy recipients of this gift.

"It is very important for us to be giving back to the local community, and we look forward to welcoming a mix of organisations in the year to come."

Worth £300 each, the golden tickets entitle charities to free admission for 12 children or adults on any day of the year that Our Dynamic Earth is open.
