Hundreds of people pounded the streets of Glenrothes on Saturday evening to raise money for charity.

The Twilight Walk, in aid of Fife’s Maggie’s Centre, has become an annual event in recent years with walkers helping to raise thousands of pounds.

Participants, many in fancy dress, chose to walk a route of either one mile, five miles or 10 miles around Glenrothes, starting and finishing at the Lomond Centre in Woodside Way.

This year saw more than 300 people take part in the fundraiser, which was sponsored by Co-op, Gilvenbank Hotel, Sign Co. and Innes Johnston Solicitors.

Before they put their best feet forward, walkers took part in an energetic warm up with Pam Weeks from Millenium Fitness.

Music at the start line was provided by Resonate, the walk’s resident band, who played along with a local DJ to put everyone in the mood.

Deputy Provost and Glenrothes councillor, Kay Morrison, officially started the walk.

Tumong Edwards, fundraiser for Maggie’s Fife, said: “Every year this fantastic community event brings so many people together, to walk, be with friends and family, remember loved ones and to raise funds and awareness and to be part of something very special.

“A big thanks to all the volunteers especially the Twilight Walk committee who dedicate their time to run this event for us year after year.

“Also a special thanks to our sponsors Co-op, Gilvenbank Hotel, Sign Co and Innes Johnston Solicitors, Resonate and the deputy provost for starting the walk.”
