A CHARITY that has been supplying masks and visors to frontline workers will soon be able to help the general public stay safe too.

Despite having to put all their disabled staff on furlough due to the lockdown, Re-Employ aim to supply face covers to protect Fifers against the coronavirus.

They're on the way while the social enterprise and charity's founder, Irene Donaldson, has also been "working behind the scenes" with business development manager Gordon Reid to generate donations for NHS Fife and keep the business going.

Re-Employ, which is based at Brag’s Crosshill Centre, specialise in creating handmade gifts and promotional items.

They've come up with a rainbow-coloured mug, pen and shopping trolley keyring set for £10 with £2 from each purchase going to the NHS.

Irene Donaldson founded Re-Employ after helping unemployed staff to find new jobs after their old employer, the Remploy plant in Cowdenbeath, closed its doors.

The aim is to prove "that the most vulnerable members of society, possess unique skills and abilities, which can contribute to a quest for excellence and the creation of quality outcomes".

As well as trying to alleviate poverty by giving employment opportunities to unemployed disabled people, Re-Employ also offers education and skills training, and the chance for individuals to express their talents through arts and crafts.
