Help the Attic in funding drive

The Attic drop-in centre in Brechin is applying for a funding scheme run by RBS, which could see a grant of £6000 being awarded.

The scheme, called Community Force, is described by RBS as “a platform that empowers local projects and charities to raise awareness of their work and make their plans a reality with the support of RBS and their local community.”

The Attic is in the Aberdeen and Angus voting area, in which there are 43 projects applying for the funding.

The three projects with the most votes in each region will receive the grants of £6000.

Votes can be placed online in minutes via the CommunityForce website, with a quick registration required.

There is a profile of the Attic on their page, giving details about the history of the centre, how it operates, and a selection of pictures and a video made by some of the youths who use it.

The Attic, a registered charity, offers a busy mix of a cafe bar, pool tables, computers, traditional games, and Sky TV to any youngster that cares to drop by.

Group volunteers are urging the local community to vote for The Attic to help them try and obtain the funding, which could help the centre greatly.
