Kirkcaldy High School pupils have rallied behind the call to support the newly opened Kirkcaldy Foodbank.
After attending the official launch, pupils and staff spread word through assemblies and social media highlighting the desperate need in the community.
The school has been overwhelmed with the amount of goods donated which filled a home made Santa’s sleigh and far exceeded the initial target, and it intends to continue to lend its support.
The initiative was led by an S4 Enterprise class with Ross Allan, Chloe Anderson, Morgan Brewster, John Clark, Jack Cowan, Janie-Lee Crombie, Sarah Houston, Natasha Lundie, Shannon Morris, Rebecca Ogg, Skye Ritchie, Molly Sinclair, Branden Taylor, Jordon Vallery and Chelsea Young, who arranged for boxes to be distributed and collected from classes.
The school also ran a soup kitchen for a day, offering home-made soup and bread, which was well attended by staff, pupils and Kirkcaldy Foodbank representatives.
Guests were entertained by a short play ‘The Christmas Miracle’ by S1 pupils Jamie-Lee Gordon, Kirsty Graham, Claire Redford and Mollie Turner.
Rector Derek Allan said the whole initiative represented “what it means to live well together - with compassion and generosity of spirit.”
