Arbroath Sea Fest Donates to Local Organisations
As preparations begin in earnest for Arbroath Sea Fest 2014, on Thursday, July 17, the committee responsible for this highly-successful annual event presented cheques to three local organisations – Arbroath Rugby Club, Arbroath Sea Cadets and 2422 (Arbroath) Squadron, Air Training Corps.
“This is our way of saying thank you to these groups for their invaluable assistance at last year’s Arbroath Sea Fest,” said Lynn Cameron, treasurer of Arbroath Sea Fest, which will take place at Arbroath Harbour on August 9/10, 2014.
“Arbroath Sea Fest is all about giving the 25,000 people who come along the best possible day out and showcasing the town’s fabulous businesses, organisations, live music, family entertainment and, of course, seafaring heritage – it’s not about fundraising,” stressed Lynn. “However, we have to cover the substantial and ever-rising costs of putting on such a massive event, while also building up a contingency fund for future Sea Fests, which is why we charge a small entrance fee and also charge stallholders.
“We are only too aware of the invaluable support provided to us by local organisations, whether they’re involved in entertaining the thousands of people who flock to Arbroath Harbour during the Sea Fest weekend or are involved in marshalling, collecting entrance fees or picking up litter. As a result, we like to donate any additional funds to voluntary groups who were involved in that year’s Arbroath Sea Fest and, over the years, Arbroath Sea Fest has donated thousands of pounds to a variety of highly worthwhile, and very helpful, local organisations.”
In recognition of their assistance at Arbroath Sea Fest 2013, Arbroath Rugby Club received a donation of £700, while Arbroath Sea Cadets and 2422 (Arbroath) Squadron, Air Training Corps each received a donation of £200.
“We’re delighted that the Air Cadets’ contribution to last year’s Sea Fest has been acknowledged by this very much-appreciated donation,” said Flight Sergeant Scott Ross, OC of 2422 (Arbroath) Squadron, Royal Air Force Air Cadets.
