Centre launches a raffle to help secure attraction’s future


Fraserburgh Heritage Centre has launched a new fundraising raffle to help secure the future of the award-winning attraction.

The fantastic first prize is a signed Scotland rugby shirt along with a £50 framing voucher.

Rugby shirts signed by the players are treated as great assets by supporters of the game. They are often ready to pay any price for possessing the shirts used by their idols.

To be in with a chance of winning this superb prize you can pick up a ticket for just £1 at the following outlets: Fraserburgh Heritage Centre; the Leisure Centre; Fraserburgh Golf Club; Dicks Sports, Broad Street; Dunes Driving Range, or Justrite, Fraserburgh.

Also up for grabs as second and third prizes are a bottle of delux whisky and a bottle of brandy.

The winning tickets will be announced at a special prize draw at the heritage centre on Saturday, September 17, at 4pm.

The local community is rallying round to support the heritage society volunteers who run the centre, donating prizes for raffles and organising fundraising events.

A spokesperson for the heritage centre told the Herald: “Fraserburgh Heritage Society is delighted with the support being shown as efforts are increased to ensure the heritage centre will not close.

“This support is coming not only from locals, but from beyond Fraserburgh as well.

“The society is greatly indebted to Diane Marshall of the Reaching Out Project for donating this signed Scotland Rugby shirt to raffle as a fund raiser, along with a £50 framing voucher from the Wallace Smith Gallery in New Pisligo.

“Support has also been shown from local businesses who have agreed to sell raffle tickets namely, Dicks Sports, Dunes Driving Range, Fraserburgh Golf Club, Fraserburgh Leisure Centre, Images Hairdressers and Justrite.

“Tickets cost £1 each and are also available at Fraserburgh Heritage Centre where the shirt is on display in the shop.

“Visitors can browse in the shop at any time free of charge.

“The centre continues to be open daily Monday to Friday, from 11am to 4pm and Sundays from 1pm to 4pm.

“We look forward to seeing everyone on the day of the draw”
