A TREMENDOUS charity event has raised over £6,000 for the Marguerite Henderson Fund.

A small group, “Friends of Benarty,” recently got together to raise much needed funds for Marguerite who recently lost her limbs to sepsis.

A charity show, at Lochore Institute, was organised by the group and all 200 tickets were sold-out in less than four hours!

The star studded show had a top class line up of Pamela, Jay-Dee, Jim Forbes, Kenny Smith, Vice Versa, Steph and was compered by Bobby Dee, who added his usual bit of fun.

Everyone of the artistes performed free of charge and a massive thank-you goes out to them.

The audience was also very pleased that Marguerite managed to go along which was a daunting experience for her, as this was her first experience in public since her ordeal.

The group also organised a raffle with a £400 holiday voucher as a star prize donated by the Cowdenbeath based Moorelands Travel agents. Various other prizes such as a 4 ball golf day at Gleneagles, hotel stays, restaurant meals, beauty treatment sessions etc were amazingly all prizes were donated by the community.

Lastly three members of the group Ann-Marie Fernie, James and Isabel McShane done a sponsored half marathon around Loch Leven.

On behalf of the Friends of Benarty Kevin Payne said: "In total the “Friends of Benarty” raised an amazing £6,207.54.

"We would like to thank everyone that contributed to raising such a vast sum in such a short time".
