SCOTTISH Labour leader, Anas Sarwar, visited the new base of a Fife charity in Lochgelly. 

Hyperclub has opened its doors on the high street and welcomed the politician alongside MSP for Mid Scotland and Fife, Claire Baker and her husband, the party's candidate for Glenrothes and Mid Fife, Richard Baker.

Ms Baker told the Times: "Hyperclub has been running for over a decade in Fife and its recent move to Lochgelly means the organisation can continue to support those facing social exclusion.

"I was pleased to visit the new premises and hear about how important the services it provides are to users.”

Mr Baker added: "It was great to visit Hyperclub alongside Anas Sarwar and to hear about the activities and services they offer for children and adults in the area.

"I'm passionate that people with learning disabilities and autistic people have the support they need.

"Charities like these are really important to our communities and we need to ensure they continue to be supported in the work that they do.”
