Sponsorship and Charities
Help for Kids raises funds to support local children in Dundee and Perth, who are disadvantaged though social and economic circumstances, or through health and disability. They work directly with communities, families, support workers, volunteers and professionals to help provide the best and most effective support for children who need it most.
Hope for Blake is an extraordinary local charity that helps fund research for a cure for MECP2 Duplication Syndrome. Inspired by Blake MacMillan, a Carnoustie born child, who is profoundly affected by the rare and devastating neurological disorder, the charity also supports Blake’s daily needs. Blake is unable to sit, roll, crawl, eat etc., and he began having seizures at just one year’s old.
We will be raising money throughout the year with our own events as well as team funding. Please keep an eye on our Events Page to see what we have coming up.
We regularly support Casting for Recovery, who provide an opportunity for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by breast cancer to gather on retreat in a natural setting and learn the sport of fly fishing. For more information on Casting for recovery please click here.
We also sponsor the 'Coach of the Year' category in the ANGUSalive Sports Awards, which celebrates the success and achievements of sporting individuals, teams, clubs, coaches and volunteers across the Angus area.
