Make a difference at The Factory Shop

Caring colleagues at The Original Factory Shop in Forfar are on the look-out for a local good cause to be their charity partner for 2013.

Staff are hoping customers will take the time to nominate their chosen group which will benefit from funds raised during 2013 as part of their ‘Make a Difference’ community campaign.

Any organisation wishing to apply to receive support from the store must fill in the form available on The Original Factory Shop’s Facebook page (Make A Difference tab)* before Friday, January 11, 2013.

Once one is selected, the store will run a fund-raising programme with a minimum target of £500 to be raised throughout the year.

Store manager, Angela Finlayson, said: “We’ve been raising funds for the Angus Cardiac Group this year and with the partnership due to end on December 31 we’re now searching for a local charity to team up with in 2013.

“We’re dedicated to making a difference in our local community and are all really looking forward to next year’s campaign.”

Launched in 2009, the ‘Make A Difference’ campaign has helped raise more than £280,000 for hundreds of UK charities to date.

Make sure you put your nomination forward in time to be considered for a cash boost in 2013.
