A SPECIAL was held on Saturday to mark the fifth birthday of the Cowdenbeath Food Bank.

It was on the March 10 2015 the Dunfermline Foodbank in Cowdenbeath opened.

Said team leader at the Fountain Waiting Rooms base in Broad Street, Pat Spence: "Over the past five years we have helped many people and families, so we opened the doors once again to the members of the public for an Open Coffee Morning".

The volunteers who are currently running the service, which helps a lot of people from the Cowdenbeath area, who need help to get enough food, enjoyed the morning and the lovely birthday cake that was made for the occasion.
