GORDON COTTAGE has been gifted a total of £750 which will be used to buy a sunken trampoline at the Child Development Centre.

The cash has come from Prudence Royal Arch Chapter Freemasonry in Kelty who have donated £250 to the centre in Cocklaw Street in the village.

It's also linked with a donation of £500 from the Provincial Grand Royal Arch Chapter of Fife & Kinross.

The funds are part of an ongoing donation to child development centres within Fife – a service provided by NHS Fife for pre-school children with additional support needs.

Jim Beveridge, second principal of Prudence Royal Arch Kelty, said: "Over the last five years, we have been supporting the child developments centres in Fife.

"We have a wee fundraiser each year and each centre has had the same amount of money.

"The staff have said they are going to get a sunken trampoline with the money because the wee one they have now is a bit too high.

"They take in kids from when they are months-old until they go to school and NHS Fife run the centres at arms length so they need donations to help them.

"It's very nice to support somewhere that is right here in the village and they do some great work."

Gordon Cottage is based in Kelty but they also take children from Cowdenbeath, Hill of Beath, Crossgates, Lochgelly, Ballingry, Dalgety Bay, Inverkeithing, Rosyth and North Queensferry.

Staff said: "We are very appreciative of the donation and the funds we are hoping to use to buy a sunken trampoline for the children to use in the garden."
