Townhill Primary School and Nursery‘s summer house sensory room was very sadly broken into numerous times through lockdown and unfortunately again since. Much of their equipment was broken or taken. Given the current COVID-19 situation, they are focusing heavily on the health and the mental wellbeing of the children and the summer house sensory room is a great support in that. We helped them buy some new equipment for the room 😀✨
The Glenrothes Rugby Club youth teams with some new kit we provided 🏉
“We believe that participation in sport by young people not only improves their health and physical wellbeing but increases their social skills and network and encourages community spirit. Our catchment area extends from Glenrothes to Levenmouth which contains some of the most deprived areas identified on the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation, in particular in health, crime, education and income. In recognition of the lower income in our area, the club keeps costs to parents to a minimum but replacing old equipment and having enough equipment for all age groups is, at times, problematic. Through taster sessions at primary schools and working with Active Schools in high schools we have again increased the numbers in our youth section to 180. Next year we will have not only an U12 girls section but also an U14 girls section for the first time.”
Well done for helping keep our communities and kids active 😀
The Abbeyview Day Centre is a charity that supports the elderly and vulnerable in the local community. They did a great job of putting together some activity packs for their members, which we helped fund. The members loved the activity packs, giving them something to do safely in their homes either on their own or with family ☺️
We helped out with some new goals for the Oakley United FC Mini Kickers 😀
Mini kickers offers free football classes to the community to get the kids active and involved in sport ⚽️
Beath High School are working hard to help families that are struggling due to COVID-19, providing extra funds and care packages with various Items such as personal hygiene products, sanitary products and food for their cupboards and freezers. We donated £300 to assist the guidance team with their work of providing support for these families (Gael Fraser, one of the guidance teachers, pictured)
Woodmill High School‘s Department for Additional Support sadly lost their entire department in a fire. They’ve kindly sent us some photos of their new cooking and life skills room with S1 pupils modelling some of the baking equipment we provided them with 😃 We’re so pleased to see they have the space again for pupils to learn very important life skills in their newly built kitchen 👩🍳🧑🍳
The Stephens Foundation has teamed up with the amazing Children’s Clothing Bank Dunfermline to provide the premises for their HQ, which is officially OPEN! 🤩
As a registered charity, run entirely by volunteers, their mission is to provide new and pre-loved clothes to families in need in Dunfermline and surrounding areas for children up to and including 18 years of age.
For some families, COVID-19 has resulted in increased financial pressures and with the long term picture remaining uncertain, there is an expectation that for many, this situation will continue to get worse in the months ahead.
To drop off donations to the Chalmers Street shop, their opening times are:
Monday 6.00 pm – 8.00 pm
Wednesday 10.00 am – 3.00 pm
Thursday 12.30 pm – 2.30 pm
Friday 12.30 pm – 2.30 pm
Sunday 2.00 pm – 4.00 pm
We love getting photos from causes/organisations we’ve supported🤩
This is Methilhaven Care Home Nursery enjoying their new wetsuits bought with our grant. COVID-19 means each child needs to have their own wetsuit, so now they can go outside and play in all weather. We believe getting outside and muddy is definitely an important part of fun and development for the kids😀 ☔️
Some PPE and Covid-19 supplies for the Hyperclub 😃✨

Some in house activities for Glendale Lodge care home who are aiming to “give continuity of care and keep clients safe. Ensuring their daily lives are enhanced with activities to keep them stimulated during this awful pandemic which has decimated some care homes” 🙂
They received a grant from us to buy in house activities, and games with specialised tools required for people with dementia and other disabilities, who are now housebound due to COVID-19.
