MS Trust fund-raiser

FORMER Montrose teacher Avril Simpson, who has raised thousands of pounds over the last five years for the MS Trust, is busy planning her latest event - a charity dinner in April.

Following a successful art exhibition and silent auction in the Montrose Library gallery last autumn, she has organised an auction of the remaining silent auction pictures at a charity dinner at the Northern Hotel, Brechin on Friday, April 15. Entertainment during the meal will be by the Yvonne Robb Jazz Trio and tickets priced £27.50 can be obtained from the Northern Hotel or from Avril directly on 01307 467041.

Avril started raising funds for the charity after her son Mike Laver (not Nick as reported in last week’s paper), was diagnosed with the condition in 2005. We apologise for any upset caused by our mistake.
