The town’s Original Factory Shop raised more than £265 for its charity partner, Montrose Community Trust.

Colleagues at the High Street shop raised the money for their local charity partner over the last six months.

The charity was picked following a Facebook poll by the store earlier in the year asking their customers which charity they should support.

Brian Hart from the local store said: “We’re really excited that we and our customers have helped to raise £267.13 for Montrose Community Trust, our chosen charity.

"What they do is invaluable for the local area and we’d like to think that this effort will go some small way to supporting their work in the community. As a company, this year we have decided to support local charities in our towns, and in March we asked our customers through Facebook which charity they would like us to support.”

The partnership is designed to raise awareness amongst The Original Factory Shop’s customers and colleagues on how Montrose Community Trust utilise the power and widespread appeal of sport to inspire change, through a range of unique and innovative programmes.

Customers can continue to donate to the local charity by making a donation in the charity box in store. Donations will also be made to the store’s charity fund when a customer buys a carrier bag or swipes their TOFS Club member card.

Over the course of the partnership, The Original Factory Shop will be running a wide range of fundraising activities to support Montrose Community Trust, including coordinated fundraising events organised by colleagues.

Montrose Community Trust aims to utilise the power and widespread appeal of sport to inspire change, through a range of unique and innovative programmes. It recently launched its Soccer Saturday & Little Dribblers programme which is an age and stage developmental programme for children aged five to 15 years of age.

Those attending follow the trust’s very own Soccer STARs football curriculum with the STAR representing Skill, Teamwork, Athleticism and Respect, with sessions based around the 4 Rs of football – receiving, retaining, running and releasing.
