A LOCAL uniformed organisation is the latest recipient of a £100 award from the 10 Cafe Bar in Forfar.
Gayle Sergeant popped along to the Castle Street premises on Saturday morning to accept the November monthly award on behalf of the 2nd Forfar Girls Brigade.
The organisation meets in Lowson Memorial Church hall, with a current membership of around 25 girls aged between five and 15.
“We offer a range of activities, including games, singing, dancing, crafts, bible stories, sweet-making, etc,” explained Sheila McDougall in her application on behalf of the 2nd Forfar Girls Brigade.
“The girls work towards one badge, which is broken down to four sections – physical, spiritual, education and service.
“For example, the juniors (P4 to P7) are learning traditional street games. They are also making their own sweet recipe book, while they are also to make their own jewellery and beaded items and will be entertaining parents and friends at a concert at Christmas.”
To help meet costs, the Girls Brigade stages fund-raisers throughout the year while, as part of their service badge, the members raise money for charity through selling quizzes or staging bring-and-buy sales.
“We try to introduce the girls to a wide range of traditional and modern crafts – and the £100 award from 10 Cafe Bar will help meet the costs of materials.”
