Other 3rd Party
A team of kind-hearted Leven Rotarians have been keeping more than 100 people in the area fed during the lockdown.

Members of the Rotary Club of Leven have teamed up with the owners of Agenda, using the kitchen to make meals that are then delivered in Largo and Levenmouth. Currently, 98 people receive meals, which have included stovies, steak pies and soups.

Meals are also delivered to people who usually use the Arden House Project, which helps elderly people who live independently.

“The people are delighted to get them,” said club treasurer Julie Brownlie.

“We’ve got a lot of great feedback. It’s not just going to people who are self-isolating, but also those in hardship, who might not have a lot of money.”

The club has also donated 100 rainbow bags, packed with toiletries, to Victoria Hospital, and is now raising funds to buy more bags, including ones for children that are packed with toys.

On top of all that, the club, made up of just 28 members, some of whom have not been able to help because they are self-isolating, has been donating £1000 a month to the local foodbank, £600 a month to another food initiative and £500 to Blood Bikes Scotland.

“We wanted to make sure help got to the people who need it,” explained Julie.

“A lot of people are going under the radar and not getting help from other groups.

“Rotary is about being people of action – and that is what we are doing.”
