College students on song to raise funds


KIND-HEARTED students who attend Angus College’s Forfar centre have handed over £1,000 to the town’s Recreational Club for the Disabled, giving the club a much needed boost.

The 13 students, from the NC Administration class, raised the money by staging a karaoke and charity bingo night at The Plough in Forfar.

Student Jamie Struthers said: “We were amazed at how popular the event was. It was a sell out and we were even turning people away at the door! It was fantastic fun and we were thrilled with the support we got from local businesses who donated lots of prizes.”

Muriel Taylor of the Recreational Club for the Disabled says they’re delighted with the cash input.

She added: “This means we can actually keep the club going in the coming months without the fear of running out of funds.”

NC Course tutor, Muriel Greenhill said: “It just shows what a great atmosphere there is here in the Forfar branch of the College.

“The students have bonded really well over the year and we’re looking forward to some new entrants in September.”
