Pars stars open new Dunfermline charity shop
Published 5 Oct 2012 15:00 4 Comments
DUNFERMLINE'S Debra charity shop transferred to their new town centre premises with a little passing help from Pars stars.
Josh Falkingham, Alex Whittle and Callum Morris attended the grand opening of the new store at 24 Bridge Street.
Debra, the only national charity helping people with the skin blistering condition Epidermolysis Bullosa, has been in Dunfermline for eight years and has relocated across the street to more suitable premises.
After a brief discussion on who was best qualified for the job, it was decided that Josh was the man to cut the ribbon and declare the shop officially open for business.
EB is an inherited condition which is passed on genetically from parents to children and it is estimated there are currently 5000 people with the condition in the UK. As yet there is no effective treatment or cure. The funding of research into this area is one of the charity's main activities. To find out more about Debra please visit www.debra.org.uk.

Interesting that this is the first comment...is it because the dunfermline public are no longer interested in Dunfermline Athletic apart from the hard core supporters (never seen such a demise in a club...club has been ruined)..or is it ???
because the last time I gave quality furniture, clothing etc to Debra the lady was ungrateful, ignorant and now they don't get my support.
Yeah yeah what ur goona say.....
It's my experience...my opinion

Aye coz thats what Dunfermline needs is another charity shop. I wonder if there will be signs for visitors telling them...charity shops this way or cheap awful pound shops that way or below par takeaway food dead ahead coz that really sums the town up for me.

There's far more to Dunfermline than charity shops and pound shops. That's all irrelevant though as the signs are for tourists and not shoppers, but don't let that get in the way of a good moan!
I'd also argue that no Pars fans commenting on this is because it's not much of a story. Pars players regularly do these activities. I think fans are more interested in the performances on the park although it's great to see the club encouraging players to help out in the local community.
