Christmas proved a generous time for Carnoustie Boys’ Brigade who will use the more than £2500 they raised to fund their activities in 2016.

Their popular Christmas Post initiative is one of many projects the Carnoustie Company undertake every year to help fund their annual programme of activities.

Neil Russell, captain of 1st Carnoustie Company Boys’ Brigade, extended thanks to the community which has again supported them in a most generous fashion this Christmas.

He said: “On behalf of the boys and staff of the 1st Carnoustie Company Boys’ Brigade I would like to thank the local residents; the various Churches and businesses; Angus Council and the parents and friends of the Company for supporting the recent Christmas Post initiative. I am pleased to advise that £2,518.47 was raised which will go towards providing the boys of all Sections of the Company with an ever more challenging and interesting programme.

“The next main event on the calendar is the annual Burns Supper on 5 February 2016 which is hosted by the boys of the Company Section to help them develop their organisation and public speaking skills.”
