A LOCHGELLY charity event which saw local people entertain saw a donation made which will help local homeless people.

The manager of Diamonds Bar, in Bank Street, Karen McLuskey, put on entertainment with owner Tam Harrower paid £3 at the door which was put into a raffle, which also saw money raised.

Jock Devine won the raffle and chose The Cairn Centre to be the recipient for the tremendous work they do, and a cheque for £336 was presented last Friday.

The Cairn Centre has a charity shop on Lochgelly Main Street which raises funds for Trust In Fife which provides temporary accommodation for 27 single people in hostels where staff are on hand to help make independent living easier.

Said a Cairn Centre spokesperson: "Our charity shops in Lochgelly and Kirkcaldy give the Trust in Fife charity funds a vital boost and offer training opportunities and employment.

"And unlike bigger, national charities, all proceeds go to the most vulnerable people living in our region.

"We sell pre-owned furniture, white goods, clothes, electrical items, books and a huge array of bric-a-brac. Everything from lampshades to laptops, beds and bathroom cabinets, trousers and teapots are all here.

"Your donations help us offer starter packs of small and large essentials for local homeless people at affordable prices. "They enable us to run workshops on up-cycling and fund training sessions for homeless people on subjects such as good neighbouring skills and healthy living".
