Factory Shop seeks new friend to fund

Caring colleagues at The Original Factory Shop in Montrose are on the lookout for a local good cause to be their charity partner for 2013, as part of their ‘Make A Difference’ community campaign.

Any organisation wishing to apply to receive support from the store must fill in the form available on The Original Factory Shop’s Facebook page before Friday, January 11.

Once a charity partner is selected, the store will run a fund-raising programme with a minimum target of £500 to be accumulated throughout the year.

Store manager Brian Hart, said: “We’ve been raising funds for Montrose Community Maternity Unit this year and with the partnership due to end on December 31.

“We’re now searching for a local charity to team up with in 2013. “We’re dedicated to making a difference to our local community and are all really looking forward to next year’s campaign.”

Launched in 2009, the ‘Make A Difference’ campaign has helped raise more than £280,000 for hundreds of UK charities to date.
