MONTROSE Macmillan Cancer Support Fund-raising Committee is celebrating a record year. The group of local volunteers raised over £16,000 last year.

Chairperson Kerry Walker said: “It’s a testament to the generosity of Montrose people that we’ve raised so much in this challenging economic climate.”

The committee organised a varied programme of events including a speakers’ dinner, coffee morning, flag day and the ever-popular Christmas Fayre.

Kerry added: “A special mention to Margaret Cowie for her annual coffee morning in her home and to Frost the baker for the largest total in a shop can.”

Committee member Mark Salmond said: “The committee is putting together an exciting programme of events for 2012 to continue with this vital fund-raising. We are planning an exciting event in June, which may be a first for Angus.”
