Radio north Angus should be serving seven hospitals in Angus by February, said Mr Malcolm Finlayson, Arbroath, the organisation’s secretary. His comment came at the presentation of a cheque for £1,305 from a 24-hour sponsored darts marathon in the Nova Lounge in Brechin. Mr Finlayson said the money would help provide an additional studio at Stracathro Hospital and also to help renovate the existing studio which had been in existence for six years.

Saturday first will be a big day for the local branch of the Royal British Legion as members will be hard at work all day raising funds for donating towards the provision of an Instatherm machine for Stracathro Hospital.
