Crazy Christmas jumpers have almost become an essential fashion item over the festive period, but one chemist in Leven has used this recent trend to raise money for a local charity.

Staff at TW Buchanan Chemists on Commercial Road in Leven donned their best festive attire in the shop for four days in the run up to Christmas in a bid to raise funds, and also raise festive cheer, with all proceeds going to Fife Gingerbread.

Generous shoppers in the store were treated to all manner of whacky jumpers, and donated a fantastic £63.43 over the four days.

Rhona Cunningham, manager of Fife Gingerbread which has its main base in Leven, said “Once again we are overwhelmed with the generosity of not only local people, but also local businesses.

“This is a great example of kindness in the community, and I’d like to commend TW Buchanan’s for their innovative fundraising method, and thank them for their fantastic enthusiasm and efforts over the four days.”

Fife Gingerbread supports and empowers lone parent, vulnerable and disadvantaged families through early intervention and partnership working.
