The streets of Glenrothes were filled with walkers taking part in this year’s Twilight Walk in aid of Maggie’s Fife on Saturday evening.

The event saw participants start at the Lomond Centre in Woodside Way and choosing to walk either one, five or 10 miles to raise money for the cancer caring centre in the grounds of the Victoria Hospital.

Men, women and children of all ages took part in the fundraiser, with some joined by canine friends on the route.

Saturday’s walk was the 10th such event to take place in Glenrothes.

Tumong Edwards, fundraising manager for Maggie’s Fife, said: “The night was fantastic, full of celebration for the 10th birthday of the Twilight Walk.

“There was lots going on with each walker receiving a commemorative medal, Resonate the drum band and Bryan Small DJ providing entertainment at the start, Jamie the Jester making balloons and George Wallace piping walkers in at the end.

Organisers The Gray/Cupar Family lead the walk off the start line.

“There’s a lot to celebrate as over the last 10 years the walk has raised over £150,000 for the centre and people affected by cancer in Fife. Everyone who took part on the night and throughout the years has made such a big difference. “On behalf of Maggie’s I would like to say a big thank you to the Gray and Cooper family for their continued commitment and passion for the walk, helping to make it happen year after year, and all the other volunteers who come along to make the event the success it is.

“A big thank you also to our sponsors Innes Johnston Solicitors, The Sign Company and Gilvenbank Hotel. Well done to everyone involved.”
