West Fife Woodlands
Is a community group of volunteers dedicated to the preservation, enhancement and accessability of West Fife Woodland areas. They have already created the popular ”The West Fife Woodlands Way”, and improvements to the paths around Culross and the plagues grave. The abundance of wildlife in the area is testament to their ecological work too. Monies raised will buy material and machinery for their ongoing work in joining up existing paths in areas of West Fife and toward the continuing maintenance of the trails and paths.

Shiresmill Therapy Riding Centre
The Centre’s important therapy work is only made possible due to a dedicated team of volunteers and the kindness of charity donations. For any riders with learning disabilities, horse riding can prove to be a life enhancing hobby to help with fitness and social interaction. During lockdown when the centre has been unable to open for visitors, the volunteers have still worked daily to ensure the wellbeing of the horses. Our event will be providing financial support to help them continue their vital work for the local community.
