A GROUP of West Fife pensioners will be putting their best feet forward next weekend as they take part in a virtual kilt walk.

The team from the Dalgety Bay Marie Curie Fundraising group – made up of ladies in their seventies and eighties – will don kilts and trek around the town after their plans to take part in the Edinburgh event were scrapped because of coronavirus.

For Sybil Cobban, 79, it is the latest event to help the charity since she set the group up following the death of her husband, Hamish, in 2003. She was keen to give back after the help from Marie Curie nurses meant he was able to die at home.

"We were registered to do it in Edinburgh but then that had to be postponed," she explained. "We were then told we could do it in our own areas as long as we kept our distance and wore masks.

"We decided to do it in and around Dalgety Bay and we are going to do eight miles over Friday and Sunday.

"I will be 80 in March and we are all in our 70s and 80s – the last time we wore kilts was when we were eight not 80!"
