The annual East Neuk Christmas card delivery service, organised by the Rotary Club of Anstruther, has just come to an end for 2014.

The service raises funds for charitable causes, has been run for the past 27 years and, this year, successfully raised nearly £3700.

The happy group of ‘postmasters’ is pictured outside Govan’s Optometrist shop in Anstruther – the main ‘sorting office’ for this year’s venture.

Nearly 15,000 cards were sorted and delivered around the East Neuk towns and villages, stretching from Elie to Crail.

It’s estimated that a half to three quarters of a million cards will have been delivered in total over those years.

The Rotarians were grateful to all who helped. Pictured, from left, are Bill Henderson, co-ordinator Andy Matthew, Derek Mathie, Bill Batchelor and David Partington.
