Sandwich support for Pitstop group

​A local businessman has come forward to lend his support to the Pitstop Youth Project in Academy Street.

Following in the footsteps of other local businesses who have offered both financial and practical support, Jim Taylor of Wrap n Roll in North Street has stepped in.

Dawn Mullady, project worker at The Pitstop, explained Jim was keen to learn more about the work down with young people at the Academy Street group.

She said: “Over a period of time Jim asked customers of Wrap n Roll about the charity and he has received very positive feedback. It was then that he decided The Pitstop Youth Project is a charity that genuinely helps and supports young people of Forfar. Jim also recognised the charity based in Academy Street also needs support from the community. He made contact and offered a delivery of sandwiches to Pitstop each week, free of charge.

“Pitstop’s Committee, The Drugs Initiative Group Forfar, would like to take this opportunity to thank Jim for his generosity and support.”

The Pitstop is currently busy fund-raising for major improvements to the facilities after receiving a funding blow in January when its application for £63,000 from the Enterprise Growth Fund was unsuccessful.
