BIG-HEARTED business people from around West Fife have handed over a £6,000 cash boost to Dunfermline charity Headroom.

The LikeMinds Alliance (LMA) was established last year by Mark Smith as he wondered if he was doing enough to support charity.

After discussions with friends and associates, he formed the LMA which he describes as a “developmental association of individuals with similar beliefs and values”.

Mark explained: “The group is for open-minded, progressive individuals who are unburdened with racist, bigoted, chauvinistic or other such thinking and who are prepared to take action and make things happen.

“LMA is a charitable alliance which means it raises money for other groups, it does not try to directly compete with other fundraising organisations and is happy to collaborate. In 2017, LikeMinds’ main support is for local charity Headroom.”

After already holding two fundraising events this year, others are planned to further help their chosen organisation, which works in partnership with local high schools, Police Scotland, other local youth charities and Dunfermline Delivers to bring local young people a range of fun volunteering opportunities which can build confidence, raise self-esteem, encourage friendships and contribute to the local community.
