A RURAL uniformed organisation is the latest recipient of the £100 monthly award offered by the 10 Cafe Bar in Castle Street, Forfar.
Morna Simpson (right), chairman, and Linda Ellis, leader of the 1st Charleston and Glamis Boys’ Brigade, popped along to the cafe bar on Monday to accept the cheque from Caroline Whyte (see picture right).
“We currently have nine boys in the company and would dearly love to try and expand this back to the larger numbers we used to have,” explained Linda in her sponsorship application form.
“Currently the number of boys and the subscriptions that we receive just cover the rent on our hall. The boys are aged between five and ten and enjoy many activities with us, including crafts, sporting activities and learning about the outdoors.
“The award money is to be used to introduce the boys to new activities, including fishing, which, I have been informed, is not enjoyed by youngsters as much as it used to be.”
The 1st Charleston and Glamis Boys’ Brigade meets in the Masonic Hall, Glamis, on Monday evenings between 6.15 pm and 7.45 pm.
