Burrelton and Woodside Senior Club celebrated a recent donation from the Scotmid Community Grant fund by inviting Scotmid Coupar Angus Store Manager, Fraser Rolley, for afternoon tea.
The grant, awarded by Scotmid’s North Regional Committee, is to help the club throw a Christmas party and buy all members a small Christmas gift, with any leftover funds going into the pot for refreshment supplies.
Marie Milne, Project Manager, made the application on behalf of the Club. Marie said: “We get together fortnightly between September and March in the Cargill Burrelton Church Hall and we generally play whist or dominoes, have a cup of tea and a chat and a bit of entertainment. The club is much needed for the older residents of the village. Upwards of 50 folk attend each meeting and we expect a turnout of around 75 for the Christmas party so the grant from Scotmid is very welcome to help with the costs for this.”
Scotmid’s North Regional Committee is made up of eight, elected Scotmid members. The committee meets regularly to consider grant applications from community groups, charities and non-profit organisations from Perth to the Northern Isles.
Fraser, Manager of the Scotmid store on George Street, Coupar Angus, commented: “It is always a pleasure to be able to help local organisations through our Community Grant Fund where we can. Encouraging communities to take part in different activities and interests is increasingly important and something that Scotmid is delighted to support. I hope Burrelton and Woodside Senior Club has a great party to celebrate the festive season and I wish them a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”
