The event was organised to raise money for the Transplant Endowment Fund, a local fund which helps families whose lives have been affected by liver and kidney disease.
Fraser Sneddon who is the cousin of Alan McDonald, the owner of AJM Builders & Groundworks, was born with a congenital liver defect and he was the 1000th person in Scotland to receive a liver transplant which saved his life.
Money was also raised to help the family of John Dempster known affectionately as “Rev” who was tragically killed in a road accident in Cardenden last month. His sister in law, Claire, organised a special “Ginger Mad” stall which had a ginger photo booth and auctioned all things ginger.
Frankie Hodge, Director at Recycle Fife said, “I have been overwhelmed by the generosity of people and businesses. This event would not have happened without the help and support of a lot of people that pulled together to make the event a real success”.
“The day itself was like a mini-festival”, according to Alan McDonald. “There were hundreds of people, lots of activities and a delicious BBQ despite the horizontal rain. We are hoping to make this a yearly event so watch this space for next year’s Strongman Family Fun Day which will be even bigger and better!” To find out more about the event and to see some pictures and videos, visit: facebook.com/RecycleFife .
