Roof Truss monthly cheque up for grabs

Every month the Forfar Roof Truss Company Limited, in conjunction with the Forfar Dispatch and Kirriemuir Herald, kindly donates a £250 sponsorship cheque to a local group or individual.

Over the years thousands of pounds have been donated to a variety of local causes.

Last year the recipients were the Rising Youngstars, Forfar Academy, Cruse Bereavement, Whitehills Primary School’s enterprise team, Forfar Girl Guides, the North Angus District Scout Section, Forfar film-maker Ryan Dewar, Forfar in Flower, Peter Fordyce for the purchase of a lathe for Forfar Academy, Alexander McGregor for discos for adults with learning difficulties, the Kirriemuir Scout Group and finally Angus Care and Repair.

If you or your group or organisation could use £250, then send in your application.

The money could be used for a variety of reasons, to purchase equipment for a playgroup; for providing entertainment for sheltered housing residents or books for schools.

It could also be used by sports clubs to purchase equipment - the possibilities are endless.

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.

The judging panel comprises members of the Angus County Press editorial staff.
