Boys hop­ing for fur­ther ad­ven­tures

Brigade bid for P&J minibus

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS - BY DAVID PROC­TOR

Anorth-east Boys’ Brigade group is hop­ing a world of op­por­tu­nity will open up if they win a new minibus with The Press and Jour­nal.

The group from Sand­haven, near Fraser­burgh, is made up of around 24 young­sters who gather in the vil­lage hall ev­ery Fri­day night.

Sand­haven Boys’ Brigade reg­u­larly ex­plores the area around them with cy­cling trips, games of foot­ball and walks along the coast.

Win­ning the com­pe­ti­tion would mean these kinds of ex­cur­sions would be­come a reg­u­lar oc­cur­rence and would take place all across Aberdeen­shire.

Sand­haven BB cap­tain An­drew Mcle­man said hav­ing ac­cess to the 17-seater Ford would mean more ad­ven­tures and a chance to ad­ver­tise the group’s ac­tiv­i­ties.

He added: “I have had them away on a num­ber of trips be­fore and took them to Codona’s (on the beach­front in Aberdeen) and even for a walk up Ben­nachie and that is some­thing we want to do more of in the fu­ture.

“If the bus hap­pened to fall into our lap, that would be amaz­ing.

“It would also mean we would be able to pub­li­cise what we do be­cause peo­ple would see Sand­haven Boys’ Brigade writ­ten along the side of it.”

To­kens are avail­able in the P&J un­til Fe­bru­ary 3. Groups can en­ter as many times as they like, as long as each form has 50 to­kens at­tached.

All en­tries must be re­ceived by Fe­bru­ary 11.
