Trust In Fife was one of three Scottish groups to benefit from the stores’ campaign which saw customers donate over 2,000 unused pairs of socks - plus £250.

Caroline McCall, chief executive officer, Trust in Fife, said: “Our clients, who reside in our temporary homeless accommodations, will have access to the clothing donation and the money will go towards activities and outings for them when we see the easing of current lockdown restrictions.”

Trust in Fife was created in December 2008 with the merger of two long-standing organisations, the Lomonds Trust and the Kirkcaldy Homeless Trust.
