A CHARITY campaign to raise funds for fellow students was launched at Angus College on Wednesday.

The ‘Change for Change’ campaign,is encouraging students to part with their loose change to raise funds for the college’s Charitable Trust, which supports students who are in need of financial assistance to enable them to continue their studies.

Principal John Burt and interim chair of the Charitable Trust, Gavin Dobson were on hand to put the first pennies in the college’s unique interactive donation box. 

Gary Taylor, a young singer songwriter from DD8 Music in Kirriemuir also provided students with an impromptu concert by busking in the foyer of the college’s Isla Building.

In addition to the main fund-raising collection point, smaller donation boxes have been placed in locations throughout the college including the reception, shop and the pitstop cafes.
