Three of the town’s hardest working charity fundraisers once again put their best foot forward, this time to help disadvantaged kids in the region.

The exploits of 15-year-old Reagan Hill, her sister Morgan (11) and Devan Robb (9) are well known to Gazette readers with the Leslie youngsters having already successfully organised a number of fundraising initiatives.

And at the weekend, supported by family and friends, they were at it again, this time completing a seven mile sponsored walk from East Wemyss to Lower Largo in aid of Kingdom FM radio’s ‘Kingdom Kids’ charity.

“A sponsored walk from Lomond Hill was the first charity event the girls organised last year, so it was only right that we did something similar 12 months on,” explained mum, Gaynor Hill.

“Last year the chosen charity was Cancer Research so this year the girls chose to help children in the region.”

Only last month the youngsters donated over £270 worth of toys and games to the children’s ward at Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy.

The efforts of the three schoolchildren were recognised in the Gazette’s end of year ‘Community Champions’ awards in December.

It started with a walk from Lomond Hill to their home in Leslie last year to raise money for Cancer research.

What’s more the youngsters set up the whole event without the knowledge of their parents.

They followed the successful walk with a charity fair at the local town hall and a Hallowe’en party for local children in the region.

Since then they have amassed over £2000 and have received support and praise from a number of community leaders and councillors.
