Linton Lane Centre
Linton Lane Centre, a community centre serving the needs of local residents and groups in Kirkcaldy was delighted to be awarded a grant of £15,000.
The donation will enable the charity to purchase two brand new porta cabins to act as a hub for the Linton Lane Centre’s food bank and community cafe space.
The Linton Lane Centre has been based in the community for 55 years, providing a venue for local groups and other charitable organisations. Its food bank, which has remained open during the Covid-19 lockdown, is based in the centre five days a week, ensuring those in need have access to fresh food and essential items.
Amanda Hunter, Centre Manager said, “We have been based in the community since 1966 and support hundreds of people throughout the years. We usually hold fundraisers and although we receive support from Fife Council, we still have found it a struggle during the pandemic to keep up with the increased need. We are in an area of deprivation and the demands are high to support families with clothing, utilities cost, animal food, so this support from the Morrisons Foundation is wonderful.”
“Thanks to this donation we can expand our centre, which will provide the opportunity for a community fridge to be installed for the food bank. The additional room will also help us provide specific areas for support services who are based in the centre. We will now also be able to create a small cafe area so we can offer a bacon roll or a cup of tea whilst enjoying a chat with people in our community as we ease back to normality.”
