Alford group gives out £3,000

Following two successful sales last year, the Alford Magic Round About Sale Committee is delighted to have £3000 to pay out to local children’s groups.

The committee is pleased to have been in a position to financially support the Alford Bonfire and Firework display with a donation of £500 and in addition make the following donations: £100 pounds each to The Gordon Skiers and Keig Kids Council, £250 to Strathford District Girl Guiding, £300 to Alford Playgroup, £450 to Strathdon Toddlers, £600 to Alford Parent Network Group and £700 to Tough Youth Club.

The committee wishes to thank all buyers, sellers and helpers for their hard work and support, and local shops and businesses who advertise the sale and generously support the raffle which is held at each sale to raise funds to cover costs.

The 2013 sales take place on 27th April and 26th October at Tullynessle and Forbes Hall, and anyone interested in selling or buying should contact the committee at alfordmras@btinternet.com or call 07547 705604 or on Facebook.

Any children’s groups within the Alford area who feel they could benefit from the next donations should contact the committee by the above means to request an application form.
