Kirriemuir is proving it is a small town with a big heart as it aims to raise £500 for Red Nose Day 2017.

The Kirriemuir and Local Business Association (Kalba) took inspiration for their fundraiser from this year’s eagerly awaited Love Actually follow-up.

Their video tribute, which can be viewed on YouTube, starred the ANGUSalive team from Kirriemuir Museum, Ailsa Lindop, museum assistant, and Rachel Jackson, museum officer, with local resident Mike Smith. The video will be familiar to many Love Actually fans, as it is an homage to the scene between Andrew Lincoln and Keira Knightley.

A Kalba spokesperson said: “We’re doing our bit for Red Nose Day 2017 and helping to raise money that will transform lives of people across the UK and Africa. Your generosity in helping Kirriemuir reach its target of £500 really will make a huge difference to so many living in less fortunate situations than ourselves.”

At the time of going to press, they had raised £300 of their target.
