Boost for Friday Night Project in Kirriemuir

The LADIES of the Fund-raiser’s Shop at 5 St Malcolm’s Wynd in Kirriemuir have kindly handed over £200 to Kirriemuir Community Liaison Officer Constable Pam to be used for the Friday Night Project.

This has enabled the project to pay Fran Marquis, a ceramicist, to work with a group of 12 young people over two Fridays, helping them make items which they will create, glaze and take home.

If this event is successful and enjoyed by the young people Constable Colvin will be in a stronger position to seek funding from other sources to enable this opportunity to be offered on other weeks to the rest of the young people who attend the project.

The Friday Night Project is always looking for people who specialise in areas such as ceramics, art, dance etc which give young people opportunities to try things which they would not normally be able to experience.

The Fund-raiser’s Shop’s donation is greatly appreciated by the members of Kirriemuir Friday Night Project who would like to say a big thank you.
