A SPECIAL fundraising effort is being organised by a local woman to transform the staff room at Benarty View Care Home, in Kelty.

Leanne Sawers' gran, Janet Guthrie, is a resident in Benarty View and Leanne is looking to raise £1,000 to make this happen.

She said: "These difficult times mean that we are unable to visit gran and give her a hug we so desperately want to give her, as with all other family members who have relatives in care, a lift.

"The staff work tirelessly every day to care for our family members and continue to try and compensate for us not being there by giving their undivided love and attention. This is at the sacrifice of their own families who they are unable to see due to being front line staff.

"The staff room is in need of a revamp. What better way to show our gratitude to the staff by helping raise funds to help towards this project"
