The Rotary Club of Kirriemuir is holding a major family fun event on Sunday at Glamis Castle to raise funds to fight prostate cancer.

The “Rotary Fun Cycle Ride” will incorporate entertainment, music, picnics, other voluntary organisations promoting themselves, free refreshments for cyclists and a two-mile track around the tarmac and gravel roads of the estate, going through the famous arboretum and around the walled gardens.

Rotarian Keith Hopkins said: “We want to encourage families to come along with their bikes and have a go together.

“We have asked cycling club members to come to Glamis sometime during the day to support us and there will be free tea and cake but we hope for donations.

“The Rotary Fun Ride is anytime during the day and we will be ready to start at 10am and finish at 5pm. Come along when you can.”

During the week supporters are invited along to take part in a cycle challenge on static bikes at the Kirriemuir Dental Practice, Webster’s Leisure Centre and the Co-operative in The Roods.
