The Forfar branch of a nationwide company has raised £1,440 in total for Angus Riding for the Disabled and Maggie’s Dundee.

The Forfar-based employees of Johnston Carmichael, an accountancy and business advisory firm, held a number of fund-raisers throughout the year.

Events included monthly dress-down days, themed costume days to celebrate special occasions including the Olympics and Hallowe’en, a monthly soup day, a company quiz night and throughout the year the team filled sweet tubes with 20 pence coins.

Roddy Anderson, managing partner at Johnston Carmichael said: “Johnston Carmichael has shown its commitment to supporting the local area in which it operates, through various fund-raising campaigns.

“We are continuously looking at ways we can give something back to very worthwhile causes in Forfar.

“Our team in the Forfar office has been fund-raising tirelessly to reach our target figure, everyone has made an outstanding contribution and it has been a real team effort in raising the fantastic sum of £1,440 for charity.

“We chose to support two very deserving causes in the Forfar area through our year-long fund-raising initiatives. The money raised will be split between the two nominated charities; £750 will be donated to Maggie’s Dundee.

“Everyone knows someone who has been affected by cancer and it is a cause which is close to many at Johnston Carmichael.

“The Angus Riding for the Disabled Association will receive an equal donation of £750. The charity is doing brilliant work, offering people with disabilities the opportunity to benefit from horse riding.

“We hope that our contribution to both charities will make a real difference to the lives of local people.”

The money raised was presented on Monday, November 4, at the firm’s Forfar office.
