THE organisation which makes a huge impact on assisting people with head injuries in the Cowdenbeath-Lochgelly area is searching for new volunteers.

Fife Headway have been helping local people cope with the often devastating effects of brain injury for 30 years and have been well supported in this area.

Indeed, in May a street collection was held on Cowdenbeath High Street and a stall was set up at Lochgelly Gala day to raise much needed funds

to enable the organisation to continue to support people living with the effects of brain injury.

Lochgelly woman, Christine McGrath, has been involved with the group for many years and played her part in the Hats for Headway fundraiser in Cowdenbeath, and at Lochgelly Gala, and said: "To keep up the valuable work we do we need some more volunteers, particularly in IT skills, fundraising, planning events and outings.

"Can you help us with our fundraising ventures or are you planning to take part in an event and would to support our charity.

"Do you like to walk?, maybe you could do the Kilt Walk for us?"

Christine said that the Fife Headway Group were also looking for a treasurer and if anyone had expertise in that particular area and could spare a couple of hours a week or would like to help with a particular piece of work, they would be happy to hear from you.

Added Christine: "Maybe you could plan activities or outings for our members or would like to join us for a cuppa and a blether to find out more, you can contact us at , call 01592 786702 or call in at Room 3 at the Ore Valley Business Centre, in Lochgelly.

"The office isn't fully manned at the moment due to a lack of volunteers so bear with us and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Please get in touch."
