Youngsters in Fife are in for a gala treat on Saturday as the volunteers behind Benarty Gala get set to distribute lockdown lucky bags to local school children.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic forcing the cancellation of the much loved annual gala event, primary school age pupils and younger children will be given the treats on the weekend the event was due to take place.
As well those in line for the free gift, organisers have promised an addition gift for all those children who come in fancy dress, as they attempt to bring a bit of lockdown cheer to the local community.
“Also on the day anyone decorating their garden and holding their own wee party please send your photos into our Facebook page and we have some prizes up for grabs too,” said Benarty Events Group chairman, Eddie Easson.
“We look forward to seeing you all this weekend but please remember we will be adhering to social distancing measures”.
Lucky bags will be distributed at the following times: – 11 am until 11.45 am – Lochore Welfare (car park) Crosshill. Noon until 1pm – Lochore Miners Institute (front of building) Lochore. 1.15 pm until 2.15 pm. Benarty Square (front of Benarty Community Shop) Ballingry.
