The annual Toys for Tots campaign sponsored by the Company ‘B’ Marine Support Battalion at RAF Edzell began last Thursday, an event held worldwide under the aegis of the US Marine Corps. 
The Marines at Edzell have undertaken the project for more than 14 years with the toys collected given on alternate years to the social work departments of Grampian and Tayside Region Councils who disperse them to youngsters in their area. This year it is Grampian’s turn.

The Angus branch of the ‘Save the Children’ Fund raised £2734 at its recent annual clothes fair, described as a “huge increase” over last year’s £1950.
