The long-standing community hub welcomed donations of cash and food donations from people in the community which supported gifts for local children, which were distributed in association with Kirkcaldy YMCA. No fewer than eight hampers from Colin Wallace, who runs the Love Kirkcaldy Facebook page, and they went to local families.Support also came from Frank and Ena at Second Chance Kennels who donated dog and cat food which is greatly appreciated by local people and Kirkcaldy Foodbank.

The centre also held a Christmas meal for Ukrainian people living in Fife and over 70 attended thanks to donations and funding from the congregation of NewCraigs Church whose members also came along to sing carols in both languages. Hosting Hope also opened on Christmas Day for a community lunch 80 attended along with 30 volunteers - a very much enjoyed day for all attending.
