Made in the Mearns charity search

Organisers of the annual ‘Made in the Mearns’ craft exhibition are looking for local charities in the Mearns to support.

Amanda Cowie, event organiser and spokeperson said: “This exciting initiative will help small, hard-to-find local charities working in their chosen community on the issues they care about”

Last year, ‘Made in the Mearns’ held its first event and it proved to be a huge success in raising funds for the Dickson Hall in Laurencekirk.

Any group seeking to apply for funding should submit a letter of request out lining their charity, organisation or event.

Submissions can be hand delivered to the Swatchmaker, 34a High Street, Laurencekirk, or emailed to madeinthemearns@gmail.com. Alternatively visit their facebook page and submit online. Charities will be announced prior to the event which takes place on Saturday, September 28.
