Great response for the Angel tree

Members of Brechin Cathedral have been bowled over by the response of their congregation.

Each year members of Brechin Cathedral, the Salvation Army and St Ninians set up an ‘angel’ tree to provide Christmas gifts to children who may not receive presents.

Irene Gillies, who is involved in the organisation of the Angel tree, said: “Last year we distributed 40 parcels to the families. This year we have 78 parcels to deliver.

“I would like to thank all who have donated the gifts and also those who help me distribute the gifts. They will be distributed in the coming week.”
