Brechin firefighters’ recent open day, which marked the 40th anniversary of the Scott Street station, raised over £700.

The event, which took place on May 31, saw former and current fire fighters attend the event, along with scores of locals.

A spokesperson for the Brechin station said: “Brechin Fire Fighters would like to thank everyone who donated at our open day and assisted on the day and in the buildup. Due to everyone’s kindness and generosity we were able to raise over £700 for charity.

“We had a really good turnout and fire fighters both old and new thoroughly enjoyed their day.”

During the open day, the fire fighters also presented a cheque for £250 to Ward 32 Endowment fund at Ninewells Hospital. The money was raised from the cartie race which took place in October last year. John Jamieson and Graeme Jamieson, who was unable to attend the event, built the fire station’s cart along with fire fighter Charlie Cameron.

Alison Inglis, who attended the open day with her son David, accepted the 
cheque on behalf of Ninewells.
