EVEN during the quiet weeks, it is still all go at Brooke’s Dream as the campaign continues to grow.

Recently Brooke Ramsay and her family have been to several presentations where well-wishers have made donations to the cause.

The largest single donation came from police officers going through the initial detective training course at Tulliallan police college who raised £1,139.

Brooke’s father, Stewart, is a police officer with Tayside Police and two of his colleagues were on the course, Detective Constable Claire Quinn and Detective Sergeant Morag Stirling.

Officers from the CID and Public Protection Units from all eight Scottish police forces got involved while on the course and organised a quiz night and an auction.

Stewart said: “Having done this course myself in 2005, I know it is very intensive and fully appreciate the effort that had to have been made to raise this remarkable amount.”

Former Carnoustie firm Pacson Valves, which is now based in Dundee presented Brooke’s mother Laura with a cheque for £340.

Half of this was raised by the staff from a Christmas raffle and the £170 was matched by managing director Keith Crawford to make a total donation of £340.

Also, following their success in the competition to find Carnoustie’s best Christmas shop window display, Guyz Cutz the barber donated their £25 prize-winnings to Brooke’s Dream.

There will be a bag-pack in Morrisons tomorrow (Saturday) and on Sunday two Christmas parties will be held to raise funds.

Money raised by the Police Christmas party will be donated to the cause and Adele Mackie has organised a Christmas party at the Arbroath Artisan Golf Club.
