Members of the community were out in force at Beveridge Park on Saturday to support a charity close to one Kirkcaldy mum’s heart.

The Armed Forces Family Funday, in aid of the Invicta Foundation, had been organised by Janette Binnie, mother of Kirkcaldy-born Sean Binnie, a Black Watch soldier who was killed in action.

The event featured a host of attractions, including stalls, raffles, demonstrations, as well as children’s entertainers, fair ground rides and much more.

Although Mrs Binnie now lives in Fraserburgh, she chose Kirkcaldy for the event because of the way the people in the town pulled together after Sean (22) was killed by insurgents in Helmand in
2009.

“Without them and their help in the aftermath of our loss, I don’t think I would have got through this horrendous time,” she said.

“I wanted to hold a funday for families because I think it is important for people to realise that, even though we lose people, life goes on.”

The Invicta Foundation is a charity for soldiers and their families which provides essential emotional and practical help.
