Could you make use of £250 award?

Groups, clubs, organisations and individuals in the Forfar-Kirriemuir area are reminded that the Forfar Roof Truss Company Limited sponsorship scheme continues to attract a wide range of applications.

Each month during the year a worthy individual or organisation will be selected to receive a £250 sponsorship cheque.

The money could be used, for example, by playgroups for equipment or outings; to provide entertainment for sheltered housing residents or books for schools; by individuals embarking on a major charity fund-raising exercise; by sporting groups seeking to purchase new gear; or by students seeking cash to fund voluntary work overseas during a gap year; the list is endless.

If you feel you or your organisation could benefit from a £250 boost you should apply in writing to “Forfar Roof Truss Company Sponsorship Project”, c/o Angus County Press Limited, 117-119 Castle Street, Forfar, DD8 3AH, by the last day in any given month.

Accompanying your application should be details (no more than 300 words), providing relevant background information on you or the organisation you represent and how the £250 could be used.

Repeat applications will be accepted, although successful applicants in any given month will not be re-considered during the remainder of the year.

Each month, the successful applicant will feature in an article in the “Dispatch” and “Herald”, to accompany the presentation of the cheque by a representative of Forfar Roof Truss Company Limited. The judging panel will comprise members of the Angus County Press editorial staff - and each month the decision will be final.
