Kirkcaldy ~ A Place of Two Halves ~ ‘Healing Paths of Fife’ in aid of Kirkcaldy Foodbank

The Merchants’ Quarter

‘Healing Paths of Fife’ in aid of Kirkcaldy Foodbank

Kirkcaldy at its best

My last post described the difficulties families are facing making ends meet in areas of Kirkcaldy but the Lang Toon is a place of two halves. There are areas of beautiful well kept stone family houses and terraces near the centre of Kirkcaldy and many points of rich cultural heritage including The Museum, library and art galleries, The Adam Smith Theatre and The Old Kirk which boasts of accomplished musical events to name but a few.

 

There are places being restored bringing back new life to the town centre including The Kings Theatre, The Olympic Arcade and the Merchant’s Quarter. See a previous post on my virtual tour of the Fife Coastal Path ~ Kirkcaldy.

Seafield Tower and the Seals

 

There are lovely walks along the promenade, out to Seafield to watch the seals or a gentle stroll to The Harbourmaster’s House in Dysart not to mention the numerous well tended parks.

Maybe a bit controversial, but there is much new building around the outskirts of Kirkcaldy, changing the demographics of the area, all of which should bring more prosperity to the town and attract businesses to establish here. A linoleum factory has even been been restored and reopened, for example, due to the ‘green nature’ of its product, bringing much needed employment to this no so wee toon.

Projects who support local folks in need in Kirkcaldy

The Kirkcaldy Foodbank, sees itself as a last resource to ensure no person is left hungry in Kirkcaldy and the surrounding areas, but there are other places which give well needed support. Here are two of them.

The Cottage Family Centre

A thriving community needs driven hub supported by Gordon Brown.

Greener Kirkcaldy

Giving practical advice and guidance regarding energy needs, also encouraging growing your own vegetables, cooking from basic ingredients and sewing etc

I have had wonderful feedback about this fantasy/memoir of mine, and so I ask you to spread the word. This is my way of giving back to a supportive community in our relocation to Fife. It is only £2.99 in the UK and $3.72 in the USA. If you’ve read it already then please spread the word. If not please buy it for a good cause and let me know what you think.

Good News! Money Raised for Local Charities

I’ve been selling my book ‘The Healing Paths of Fife’ in the past year in local shops with profits going to local charities, including:

Kinghorn Community Library

Kinghorn Play Parks

The Friday Lunch Club (for the elderly)

I would like to thank these Kinghorn establishments for their support:

The Sea Witch, (a place for that unique gift or card), Dragon’s Den (for everything knitting wise) and Harbour View (a wonderful local bistro where you can eat, drink, blether and gaze out over The Firth of Forth towards the sea.

Total given away so far: £317

I am looking to continue to raise money during the summer of 2019, only this charity is another I feel very strongly about:

Kirkcaldy Food Bank

As a volunteer packing parcels of food I have noticed the need grow beyond comprehension over the past year.

I am looking for places in Kirkcaldy, or Burntisland, (which also benefits from the foodbank twice a week) If you know of anywhere I may be able to hold a booksigning or will just have some copies available to sell please get in touch:

dianariduna@yahoo.com

This is my way of giving back something to my local community where we have recently settled.
