Funds boost for Blackpool trip

JAZZERCISE instructor Karen Downie is holding a special fund-raising class in Kirriemuir next Tuesday evening to help fund a trip for Kirriemuir Youth Football Club’s under 14s team.

She is running a sponsored class from 6 to 7 pm in the Kirriemuir Sports Centre on March 27.

Those taking part are asked to give a £5 donation, with all funds going towards the boys’ participation in a major football competition from April 5 to 9.

Karen said: “The team has done so well in the league and are taking part in an international youth football tournament, playing against teams from all over Europe. There are over 400 teams taking part and the boys have done really well to be part of it.”

Karen, who runs popular Jazzercise classes in the Reid Hall on Monday and Wednesday evenings, has supported a number of organisations from playgroups, Riding for the Disabled and the Mountains Animal Sanctuary. She has praised the dedication of the under 14s coach, Darren Penman, and is hoping the class will boost their funds.
