THE new B&M Cowdenbeath store, at the North End retail park, opened on Saturday.

The store is creating 50 jobs and the new colleagues were asked to nominate a local charity they think truly deserves some VIP treatment for the work they do for the local community.

They chose the team from Sense Scotland, who will took centre stage to officially unveil the new B&M store, alongside Lochgelly man Jim Leishman, the Provost of Fife.

The charity works with disabled children and adults and its aim is to create a supportive world for people with complex communication support needs where they can live meaningful lives and achieve their own ambitions.

In addition to opening the new store, the team will also receive £250 worth of B&M vouchers to go towards the charity.

Based at the former North End Park the B&M store, along with the new Lidl outlet, give a completely different look to the north end of the town's High Street.

The store manager, Colin Simpson, said: “The team at Sense Scotland really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for local people in the community, we wanted to give them some VIP treatment as a thank you for all the hard work they do.

“We hope that our donation can help them to continue the great work they do.”
