Fife Chamber donates £1300 to alcohol support service

Members of Fife Chamber of Commerce have once again come together to raise money for a very worthy local cause at this year’s annual dinner, presenting a cheque to the Fife Alcohol Support Service.

The event, attended by around 220 guests, is a highlight of the Fife business calendar and was held recently at Fairmont St Andrews, with Danny Alexander MP, Chief Secretary to the Treasury as the guest of honour.

While Mr Alexander spoke of the huge economic challenges facing the UK, members of Fife Chamber took the opportunity to donate generously after dinner by taking part in the charity prize draw, raising a fantastic total of £2600 for this year’s nominated charities.

The sum of £1300 was awarded one of the chosen causes, the Fife Alcohol Support Service (FASS), which provides counselling and support for many vulnerable people in Fife who are affected by alcohol-related problems.

Fife Chamber chief executive Alan Russell, said: “It delights me to be able to pass on this generosity to the benefit of a local charity that has been providing support to vulnerable people and their families across Fife for 35 years.”
