Colleen Wilkie from Newburgh, presented the masks to foodbank volunteers, along with lecturers Natalie Kerr and Ciaran Faherty.

Colleen said: "Sourcing the facemasks for our retail planning and event unit was fun and challenging.

"We organised teams to source, price and market our Fife College branded product, and at each point the full class was consulted to make key decisions.

"It was great to donate the masks to Kirkcaldy Foodbank. Eddie and the staff there were so welcoming, and it is excellent that they will be put to such good use."
