�1,500 was raised for a number of charities through a silent auction in the Meadowbank Inn.

A brilliant turn out for The Arbroath Rotaract Club’s silent auction in the Meadowbank Inn on April 11 raised lots of funds for worthwhile causes.

Almost 90 people attended the event and with 60 items for sale, it proved to be a busy night.

With lots ranging from horse manure to paintings and hospitality vouchers for football teams, bidding was intense.

A total of £1,500 was raised and will be shared between Tayside Children with Cancer & Leukaemia and Progressive Supranucleur Palsy. Background music was provided throughout the night by singer and guitarist Keith Rodgers and everyone enjoyed the evening.

The Rotaract Club has now been running for two years and meets at 7.30 p.m on the first and third Tuesdays of each month in the Enterprise Centre at Dundee and Angus College, Keptie Road, Arbroath.

The Rotaract is an organisation open to young people between 18 and 30 with clubs throughout the world. The Arbroath club encourages new members to come along, meet new friends, see what they do and develop leadership skills while doing a bit of good in the community.

Life in the Rotaract Club is never dull. Join in the next event, which is a sponsored walk up Ben Lawers at the end of May. Call the club mobile on 07938799524 for further information.
