Free advice for over 50s with series of Angus fairs

The events, which will focus on cost-of-living, health and welfare support, are being delivered together with local MSPs, Graeme Dey and Mairi Gougeon, local Angus councillors, Citizen’s Advice, Welfare Rights, Reengage, Alzheimer Scotland, North East Sensory Services, Pensionwise and many other organisations.

Held in Kirriemuir, Montrose, Arbroath, Brechin and Forfar, the events will cover all of Angus, with support and advice available free of charge.

Mr Doogan said: “These are tough times for all of us, but especially so for over-50s, many of whom rely on a pension which stretches far too thinly while costs skyrocket. I am delighted to be partnering with my colleagues in the Scottish Parliament and Angus Council, as well as so many incredible organisations who deliver critical support to over-50s every single day, across Angus and Scotland. These fairs will be open to all over 50s, free of charge, and could help you, or a loved one, get the support you need in these tough economic times.”

The events will be: Kirriemuir - Kirriemuir Bowling Club, on Friday, June 30 June, 1pm - 4pm; Montrose - Montrose Bowling Club, Friday, July 7, 10am-1pm; Arbroath – Gayfield Park,Thursday, August 10, 1pm-4pm; Brechin - venue TBC, Friday, September 8, 1pm-4pm; Forfar - venue TBC, Friday, October 6, 1pm-4pm.
