The Angus Spirit of Christmas Appeal has launched for the third consecutive year.

Dropping off allocated gifts

Locals can now donate their gifts to the drop-off point at Specsavers in Arbroath, to be given to hundreds of disadvantaged children and young people in the area.

The appeal has had a fantastic response from the community and has allocated each person with a specific child to buy a gift for.

Katie Baxter, Angus Spirit of Christmas Appeal organiser, said: ‘Those who have been asked to hand their gifts to Specsavers in the Abbeygate Centre can do so by 11 December.

‘We’ve had a superb response during our previous appeals, collecting more than 200 presents which were shared between several local charities and organisations.’

Window display Store director, Jamie Buchan added: ‘We are delighted to support the Angus Spirit of Christmas appeal for the third year. Passers-by will be able to see all the wonderful gifts displayed in the store window. I’ll also once again, be donating a selection box for every child the appeal supports.’
