THE Haiti Nurses have a couple of important fundraisers coming up as they busily put their programme for 2020 into action.

Lochgelly's Lou Davidson and Elaine Stark; and Kelty's Carole Hatten, are the Haiti Help Nurses, and have been making a major impact on the small Caribbean island of La Gonave, where they played their part in seeing a brand new purpose built orphanage constructed and each year take important medicines to help children who might not otherwise be able to access such help.

But to do all that they need to raise a lot of money and they have a charity concert coming up on Saturday March 7 at St Serf's Church, in Lochgelly, with tickets at £5, and then a Vintage Market later in the month.

Said the Haiti Help charity's secretary, Lou: "Our concert in Lochgelly on Saturday March 7 will be with the East Fife Male Voice Choir and it should be a good event.

"There will be a short presentation during the concert about our work in Haiti which we hope will prove interesting for those who support us.

"We try to raise a significant sum each month to help get the items we will need for our visit to La Gonave in a few weeks time."

They will also be holding a Vintage Market in the Vine Church, Garvock Hill, Dunfermline, on Saturday March 21, from 10 am until 2pm, as their work to boost funds continues.

Added Lou: "There are some tables still available for sellers at just £10.

"There will be more than 20 tables selling vintage, pre-loved, collectable and retro items and many bargains to be had."

The Haiti Nurses, from the Cowdenbeath-Lochgelly area, have been busy on La Gonave for a decade now and the children of the orphanage look forward eagerly to their visits.
