A popular venue
“Glamis Castle has been a popular venue for various outdoor events over the years,” emails reader Andy Inglis. “The recent Courier article about the car rally there reminded me of a rally of young Save the Children Fund supporters at Glamis Castle in 1985 which I attended.
“Groups of youngsters who had been involved in collecting funds for the Save the Children charity were invited to the rally. One person from each of the groups would meet and chat with HRH Princess Anne.
“The photograph below left, taken at the rally, shows HRH Princess Anne, who has been President of Save the Children UK since 1970, chatting to some of the children.
“Perhaps your readers may remember that particular rally and possibly recognise the young people in the photograph.
“Apart from seeing HRH Princess Anne, the rally was supported by a pipe band, a group of majorettes from Kinross and other spectator attractions.”
