Forfar Rotary Club President Tim Hale accompanied by some Rotarians made a visit to the Local Tesco store on Friday. This was a case of you help us and we will help you.
Scott James was on hand to receive two certificates, one in appreciation for the donation of sweets and oranges that Tesco provided to hand out to the children when Santa came to the Cross and a second for allowing the Rotary Wishing-well to be placed inside the store over the festive period. Once again tribute was paid to the Forfar public who on this occasion parted with £168.00. Using Tesco’s own slogan President Tim said “every little helps”
On the other side of the coin Tesco asked if the Rotary Club could help with someone who could perform the address to the haggis at their store on the 27th Jan. Fortunately for Tesco this proved to be no problem, as Rotarian Dave Arnot is well versed in his rendition of the bards famous words. With great aplomb he performed with great gusto, wielding a knife possibly last seen being used by Paul Hogan in “Crocodile Dundee”. Customers and staff were greatly entertained and Dave was warmly applauded as he drank the customary somewhat large dram.
In conclusion President Tim agreed it was a case of Tesco helps Rotary - Rotary helps Tesco.
