Families, friends, church congregations and centre users in and around Kirkcaldy have been gathering around assorted tables to raise funds for Maggie’s Kitchen Table Day.

Friday was the date set aside for the nationwide event, but local events have been taking place thoughout the week to collect as much cash as possible for our cancer caring centre.

Outwith Kirkcaldy there were events at the Dreel Halls in Anstruther and Better World Books in Dunfermline.

Tu Edwards, centre fundraising manager, said: “We have been very impressed with the number and range of Kitchen Table events happening around Fife - and they are set to continue throughout March.

“We don’t have a total but so far they have raised over £1000 which is fantastic.”
