Raffle prizes up for grabs to help re­store church

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

As part of their fund-rais­ing ef­forts to re­store St Stephen’s Church to its for­mer glory, church mem­bers are run­ning a char­ity shop in Howe’s for­mer shop in Re­form Street in Blair­gowrie this week.

The shop is open from 10am to 4pm un­til Friday this week.

And as well as the tra­di­tional bric-abrac, books and clothes avail­able to pur­chase, four un­usual and de­sir­able items are to be raf­fled off.

Th­ese in­clude a lov­ingly re­stored tra­di­tional doll’s cot, a ro­bust wooden sledge, an old­fash­ioned bo­gie and a sturdy bird ta­ble - all kindly do­nated by lo­cal peo­ple.

Items for sale can be left at the shop dur­ing open­ing hours and ev­ery­one is wel­come to browse and buy. All funds raised will help top-up grants from the Her­itage Lot­tery Fund, His­toric En­vi­ron­ment Scot­land and oth­ers.

Chance to win Raffle tick­ets in aid of the restora­tion fund for St Stephen’s Church are avail­able in the char­ity shop in the town this week
