Afternoon of festive crafts

McCarthy & Stone at Strathmore Court in Forfar is hosting a ‘Festive Crafts’ afternoon on Wednesday (today) from 2 pm to 4 pm, giving visitors the chance to enjoy free festive craft demos and the opportunity to take part in card-making and fabric-craft workshops!

The show apartment will also be available for visitors to tour around as well.

Tickets are £2 each and the organisers are raising money for Barnardo’s, the UK’s leading children’s charity, with all ticket money going directly to the charity.

Suzanne McElhiney marketing manager for McCarthy & Stone in Scotland, said: “We’re delighted to be holding this festive craft event in aid of Barnardo’s.

“The charity achieves some remarkable things for children across the UK and they really need as much support as possible to continue this good work. I’d like to welcome members of the public to come and join in the fun for a very worthy cause.”

Barnardo’s runs over 40,000 projects across the UK that transforms the lives of children and young people every day.
