A charity shop in Montrose got into the festival spirit over the weekend and revellers helped to raise more than £700.

The Cancer Research UK shop on the High Street hosted live music in its store window on Saturday and Sunday.

Jill Cooper, assistant manager of the store, said: “It was a very successful event again this year during which we made just over £740.

“Everyone that came into the shop enjoyed the music being played and the artists themselves said how much they enjoyed playing
for us.

“We are humbled by people’s generosity.

“We would like to say a very big thank you to all the artists who came and played for us, without whom this would not have been possible, the MoFest committee for their help and supporting us, even though it must have given David Paton a few nightmares!“

Jill continued: “We would also like to thank all the other acts who donated merchandise to us as raffle prizes, all the members of the public for very generously donating money into the collection buckets and buying raffle tickets, W.M Johnstons, Henry Hoggs and Partytime, who donated water for us to keep the artists voices lubricated, and all the staff and volunteers of Cancer Research who worked on their days off to help us run the event smoothly.

“It is all of the above that has helped make this the huge success it has already become, we couldn’t have done it without you and we are already thinking about next year’s event!”
