UNICORNS and Minecraft figures helped raise a magical sum of money for the kids who go to Benarty Primary School's additional support centre.

Two mums, Dannielle Duncan and Kerry Glover, put on a fun day at Lochgelly Institute last Friday with the £578 proceeds going towards new toys and equipment.

Dannielle, from Ballingry, told the Times: "I was so stressed as I didn't think anyone was going to turn up!

"But it was really busy, I was overwhelmed by how well it turned out as we didn't expect to raise that much.

"We did a tombola and a raffle, there were stalls with cakes and sweeties, hot dogs, toys, flowers and crafts.

"We hired a ball pit and there was a giant Connect Four game too, while the face painter was a massive hit – the most popular requests were for unicorns and Minecraft!"

She added: "What also helped was Derek Davidson, whose involved with the Fairy Wood at the Meedies, he donated the leftover Easter eggs so we had over 300 to give away.

"It was fantastic and it was really good to see the kids enjoying themselves."

Dannielle, mum to Jaxon (7), Travis (5) and four-year-old Hayley, said she wanted to give something back as the centre and its staff have been so good for her son.

She explained: "Travis is non-verbal and autistic and it was a bit of a fight to get him in but it's the best for his needs.

"I want to raise as much money as I can for the department as they are incredible with my wee boy, he just loves it.

"We understand the school has a budget but it's disabled kids and kids with additional needs so the toys and equipment don't always last!"

She added: "It's the first time I've done anything like this and I've been overwhelmed by the generosity of the local community.

"We had donations from local businesses, Bayne's, the community shop and the butchers, so many people helped us.

"It's made me want to do something like this again!"
