Young carers from Glenrothes and Markinch completed an outdoor education course at Lochore Meadows Country Park.

It involved two full weeks of activities in the school holidays, as well as a weekend spent hiking and camping in the wilds.

Association of Fife Rotary Clubs sponsored the project and chairman, David Pirie, said: “This is a tremendous achievement by these youngsters.”

Fife Young Carers manager, Roy MacGregor, added: “The programme not only lets them get to know other young people who are in the same boat, it also helps them develop skills in teamwork and problem solving, enjoy challenging activities and learn about the environment.“
