Huge donation to town by For Carnoustie

THE FOR Carnoustie shop project counted its first major success last night (Thursday) when it made a series of donations to the town.

Over £20,000 was donated by the shop to various Carnoustie-based good causes at a presentation at the Carnoustie Golf Hotel.

On the For Carnoustie Facebook page the organisers posted: “What a great night tonight at the first ever For Carnoustie presentation evening. In total we handed out cheques totalling just under £20,000.

“We are so chuffed to be handing out this money after such a short space of time!

“We could not do this without the support of the local community donating and buying, as well as local businesses who have helped us all through the year.

“Finally none of this would happen without our fantastic volunteers, who are the backbone of the shop.”
