HUNDREDS of local people are continuing to access support from Lo'gelly Lunches as the group continues to provide lunches, as well as access the food and essential produce.

On Friday Fife MSP Alex Rowley met with volunteers and staff to thank them for the work they are doing to provide essential services and food operating from their base at Lochgelly Town Hall.

Mr Rowley, pictured with volunteers Linda Erskine and Lorraine Mullen in the kitchen area at the town hall, said: “The sheer volume of people coming through the doors each week has highlighted the need for such services and support and I wanted to thank all the volunteers who give up their time and resources for the better good”.

The Fife Labour politician is warning that for many the coming months will be very difficult with levels of unemployment not seen in decades, due to the effects of the coronavirus crisis.

He said; “Things are going to get a lot tougher for many and we will need more support at a community level.

"The council staff who make all the activities run from Lochgelly Town Hall are in my view demonstrating what can be done if you work to support community activity and I want to see more of this rolled out across the area”.

The Lo'gelly Lunches continues to offer support with the ‘hot hatch’ Monday’s, ‘packed lunch’ Wednesday’s and the ‘community larder’ every Friday between 11am and 1pm. Everyone welcome.
