Santa paid a surprise visit to the new Dunnichen Stone pub restaurant at Orchardbank during his busy run-up to Christmas .
He popped in to the premises to thank revellers for throwing their pennies and pounds in the Forfar Rotary Club wishing well.
Santa surprised everyone by flying in and pulling up his sleigh unexpectedly at the Dunnichen Stone to thank all the Christmas party goers for their generosity.
He said: “It’s wonderful to see everyone enjoying themselves and giving generously to help this important charity”.
Dave Valentine, convener of the Angus Rotary Marafun 2014 said: “The Dunnichen Stone is the latest location for the Forfar Rotary wishing well which has raised hundreds of pounds already for local charities.
“The wishing well will stay in the venue until at least May 25 which is the date of this year’s Angus Rotary Marafun.
“In line with the aim of Marafun, all proceeds collected will be donated to the Ninewells Cancer Campaign and other local charities”.
The Dunnichen Stone is the official sponsor of the Marafun sports zone and is keen to raise as much as possible for the chosen charity.
The staff and customers have been encouraging everyone to give generously to the Marafun 2014 appeal especially over the festive season.
Forfar Rotary Club has been busy planning the Angus Rotary Marafun and has invited organisations from the length and breadth of Angus to help make the 2014 event the biggest and best since the club organised its first Marafun in 2002. Since then some £147,000 has been raised for Cancer Relief making Marafun the largest single contributor to the Jacqui Wood Cancer Centre other than by corporate business donations.
