Shindig set to be a sell-out

THE full house signs are up for an extra-special fundraising event to be held in Forfar in June, which will raise funds for eight charities with strong connections to the local area.

The Shindig for 8 Charity Dance will be held in Strathmore Hall, Forfar Mart on Saturday, June 2 in aid of Cystic Fibrosis (Tayside), Diabetes UK Scotland, Jockey Jan Memorial Fund, Lippen Care, Multiple Sclerosis Society Scotland, Ninewells Paediatric Gastroenterology Fund, RNLI and Tayside Children with Cancer & Leukaemia (TCCL).

The committee organising the Shindig for 8 Charity Dance are Lillian Carnegie, Lillias Greenhill, Anne Kydd, Shirley Leslie, Kay Lyburn, Hazel Melrose, Moira Nicoll, Alison Orr, Alison Stodart and Margaret Wilson.

Already over 500 tickets have been snapped up for the event, and a reserve list has been drawn up in case any of those who have booked tickets find themselves unable to attend.

Those planning to attend can look forward as an evening of top class entertainment from the Lomond Ceilidh Band and High Mileage, also a delicious barbecue by Scott Brothers Butchers, a bar and a charity auction.

Margaret Wilson, on behalf of the organising committee, would like to thank everyone for their support so far, with many great prizes and donations already pledged.

If you would like your name put on the reserve list for the event, are able to help in any way or perhaps would like to make a donation then contact Margaret via e-mail on
