Kirsty with her dance partner Bradley.

Kirsty Littlejohn hosts the charity football match in her home village on February 19 at Culbokie astroturf.

There will be three matches, two qualifiers and a grand final where friends and family will compete on the pitch.

Spectators can also enjoy face painting, local baking, a raffle and a bottle stand.

Kick off is at 2pm and everyone is welcome to show up and enjoy the friendly competition.

Ms Littlejohn said she was surprised but happy that so many people wanted to play in the game while raising money for charity and looked forward to the event.

She is taking part in the upcoming Strictly Inverness event to benefit Highland Hospice and the Inverness Ice Center which raise money for both groups through fundraising and ticket sales.

Ms Littlejohn, 27, is a nurse but now also trains three to four times a week in preparation for the event.

Previously, she raffled off a pair of sold out Belladrum tickets to add to her fundraising total ahead of the big night.

She has been paired with partner Bradley Duke for the event which will take place at the Inverness Ice Center from May 18-21.

A total of 16 couples will dance on Thursday and Friday, with the top couples competing in a grand finale on May 21.

The funds generated each year by the event are vital for both groups.

Inverness Ice Center must maintain its facilities and help organize events.

The Hospice offers incredible care to people at the end of life.
