BENARTY undertaker Harry Webster will undertaking a dramatic adventure on Monday to highlight the need for more to be done help homeless people locally and in Scotland in general.

Harry, who runs Benarty Funeral Directors, will be 'homeless' for 24 hours, starting at 9am on Monday December 3, when his home will be the Miners Memorial Garden, at The Shank, in Ballingry.

He will have the most minimal of items with him but as well as highlighting what homeless people face, he hopes to raise a lot of money for Lochgelly Salvation Army, who hold a Christmas Day event for homeless and lonely people, at their Auchterderran Road Hall.

Said the Benarty man: "It is cold and damp and there are concerns where the next meal or cup of tea or coffee is going to come from, that is what faces homeless people.

"This is something which affects people locally, in Fife and Scotland in general, and really in the 21st century, more should be done to try to ensure everyone has a secure place to stay."

He added: "I will start my 24 hour vigil at 9am on Monday December 3, and it will end at 9am on Tuesday December 4, I hope people can sponsor me and maybe drop a cup of tea of on Monday!"
