Attic race night success

A RACE night, organised by Brechin Youth Project The Attic, has raised over £4000 for the group.

A spokesperson for the group said: “Brechin Youth Project The Attic would like to thank everyone who supported our recent race night in aid of raising funds for the project. The evening could not have gone ahead without the support of the local businesses and individuals who sponsored races, horses and donated raffle prizes for the evening.

“A big thank you must also go to the committee who gave up their time and effort on the evening to help out, to Murray Lindsay for being compère on the night and to those who came along on the night to bet and jockey the horses.”

Caroline Southesk, chairman of The Attic, praised the efforts of the committee running the evening, in particular Kay Robertson and Liz Kidd who have managed the event from start to finish:

“As a result of this, a sum of over £4000 was raised and will be a large contribution towards the total annual running costs of the Attic which are almost £30,000.

“This money will help us to provide the youths of Brechin with activities both within and out of the centre along with helping to pay utility bills and staff wages.”
