Rotary Club of Blairgowrie presents cheque to Bookmark

Over sixty guests joined organisers of the BOOKMARK book festival at The Lairds Blairgowrie last Saturday to sample a range of gins and whiskies from Strathearn Distillery as part of a fund raiser event to launch this year’s exciting programme. Chocolatier, Shona Sutherland, from Taystful sweetened the afternoon with some delicious chocolate truffle dipping.

Jim Irving, President of The Rotary Club of Blairgowrie presented a cheque to BOOKMARK Chair, Christine Findlay, on behalf of the Club which is sponsoring the author line-up on Saturday, 8th October at Blairgowrie Community Campus. The Club has been very supportive of the festival from its inception four years ago but this is the first time it has sponsored a whole day’s events. Expressing her appreciation, Christine said, “Blairgowrie branch of Rotary work impressively hard to contribute to the success of a wide range of projects from trying to erase polio to helping fund the ‘Playlist for Life’ project set up by Sally Magnusson in support of sufferers of dementia. BOOKMARK is honoured to be included in their list of beneficiaries.”

Sally Magnusson will be appearing at BOOKMARK 2016 – 7th - 9th October – along with a stellar cast of fellow authors. Full programme details and tickets available at




I greatly appreciated the superb organisation and was amazed at the level of enthusiasm for the Festival considering the relatively small size of the community.  It was well worth it for me to come up to Perthshire and I was only sorry I couldn‘t stay around for the main events the next day.
